The UK is now committed, in law, to become carbon neutral by 2050 and every organisation has a responsibility to transform its culture.

Who is it for?

This course offers organisations the essential facts on climate change enabling a shift towards this sustainable culture.

The course is accredited by the Carbon Literacy Project, a globally unique charity recognised by the United Nations at COP21 in Paris where it was awarded as a TAP100 (one of 100 worldwide Transformative Action Programmes).

What will I learn?

  • The science of climate change in an accessible, understandable format.
  • How climate is likely to change and how this will affect us.
  • Understanding pathways to avoiding dangerous climate change.
  • Understanding climate justice and the geographical implications of climate change.
  • Carbon footprints and how our actions impact our personal carbon footprint and those of our organisation.
  • What is already being done and what remains to be done, including the adoption of green energy solutions, circular economies and the positive impacts of lifestyle change.

How will I learn?

More than just passive learning, the course makes climate change and sustainability accessible to everyone through video, activities and thought provoking engagement.

Following the successful completion of the full course, each learner is awarded a uniquely-coded Carbon Literacy certificate to reference that achievement.
