About the course:
 
What is Carbon Literacy Training?
 
Carbon Literacy is an awareness of the carbon costs and impacts of everyday activities. The course aims to give learners the ability and motivation to reduce harmful carbon emissions, on an individual and community basis.
 
The course is designed to be fun and interactive. The presentations and activities are created to offer a rich mixture of learning styles and techniques to promote inclusivity and offer the most effective learning among its attendees.
 
By completing a day’s (min 8 hours) worth of Carbon Literacy training learners will be certified as ‘Carbon Literate’ by the Carbon Literacy Project.
 
The main objective of the course is to encourage individuals to TAKE ACTION. By taking the learners on an emotional journey and giving quality knowledge on the science of Climate Change, the group will then make individual pledges to create change for themselves and within their community.
 
What to expect from a Carbon Literacy Training Day:
 
During your minimum of 8 hours of training you will;
 
Learn
The science of Climate Change. The understanding of what is happening to our planet due to the excess greenhouse gasses in our atmosphere. What causes these gasses? What will happen to the planet if we keep living the destructive lifestyles mankind has been living over the past 200 years?
 
Taking Action
Learners are empowered to devise realistic and relevant actions to reduce their carbon footprint.
Learners will be asked to commit to personal AND group actions. Actions must be meaningful and significant to the individual creating them.
 
The course offers a mix of visual, aural, verbal, physical and logical learning throughout.
 
After attending a course, Carbon Literate citizens will: Understand how climate change will affect the Earth, their community, and have acquired the knowledge and skills to lower their individual carbon footprint.
 
At the end of the course the trainer will submit ‘evidence’ to The Carbon Literacy Project on behalf of each learner. The forms completed as part of the course will confirm the learner has; completed the required training, is in fact ‘Carbon Literate’ and has committed to taking significant action. If the evidence is approved, the learner will be certified Carbon Literate and receive a certificate.
