Event description

Description

Do you want to have a better understand of what is causing climate change and what you can do about it?

This one-day, certified course covers the basics of climate change science, how we know it's happening now, how climate change will affect us in the future, what is already being done and what we can each do to take action.

It is aimed both at individuals and representatives of local organisations who want to be able to talk more confidently about climate issues with others. Some of you might even decide that you want to go on to learn how to run Carbon Literacy training for your friends and colleagues.




What is Carbon Literacy? "An awareness of the carbon costs and impacts of everyday activities, and the ability and motivation to reduce emissions, on an individual, community and organisational basis."





Practicalities:

  • The day starts promptly a 9:00am so please arrive around 8:45am. It finishes at 5:00pm or just after.
  • Please bring your own packed lunch. Alternatively, there will be enough time to pop out at lunchtime. Coffee / tea / snacks will be provided throughout the day.
  • Trinity URC is very close to St Albans City Station, which is well-served by buses. If you need to drive, please be aware there is very little parking at the church, but there is parking at the station.
  • Unfortunately, the room is up a flight of stairs and we are very sorry that it is unsuitable for those in wheelchairs.

Any queries, please contact the trainer, Linda Shall, on linda.shall@sustainablestalbans.org



Cost and certification: The day costs £20 - this covers room hire, materials, admin and refreshments plus the £10 cost for your certificate, which is levied by the Carbon Literacy Project. Their backing ensures the course meets national standards; over 9000 people have been trained to date. Participants are eligible for the certificate if they take part fully in the day, and pledge to reduce their carbon footprint.
