Event description

Description

The Carbon Literacy project originated as part of Manchester City Council’s sustainability strategy to reduce the carbon footprint of the city by 41% by 2020. The aim is to give every person who works, lives or studies in Manchester (approximately 1 million people) a day’s worth of carbon literacy training.

The training gives people an understanding of what climate change is, and its effects, providing them with sufficient information to be able to make their own decisions about what they can do to reduce their own carbon footprint and that of the organisation in which they work. In the words of one of the delegates, "Carbon Literacy is about understanding what I actually need to do, where I can get help to do it, actually doing it and seeing that I've done it."

MDNW is now beginning to roll out the training to museums in the North West.
