Carbon Literacy Training July 2021

In these times when the world as we knew it has undergone instantaneous change, there is no better time to focus on changes that will make the world a better place for all and link the Covid 19 recovery with a transition to a low-carbon economy while addressing social inequalities at the same time.

This Carbon Literacy Training Programme equips you with the information and skills needed to make these high impact changes in your work for example research, teaching or consultancy work in order to reduce carbon emissions along with addressing multiple other SDGs. A certificate is given upon full participation and completion of the training.

The four session cover:

1. Positive Futures Scenarios and Climate Justice
2. Climate Science and the matching high impact climate solutions
3. Carbon calculation and individual action
4. Climate Change Mitigation: a systems approach
5. Your own Action Plan

This training was developed by Nottingham Business School (Nottingham Trent University) in collaboration with the UN PRME Champions, Oikos International and the Carbon Literacy Project. It also includes an introduction to En-ROADS developed by Climate Interactive in collaboration with MIT Sloan and Ventana Systems.
