Event description

Description

The critical facts you need to understand and take action on climate change as an individual or an organisation

This one-day training course covers essential climate change learning related to food sustainability and is accredited by the Carbon Literacy Project.

The Carbon Literacy Project is 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).

The Carbon Literacy Project

Overview:

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

After the course, you will understand the science of climate change, how climate change will affect you and the environment, both geographically and sectorally, with particular reference to farming, land use and food.

Finally, the course leaves you with the positive resources you need to engage in tackling climate change on a personal, organisational and global level with typical realised carbon savings of 5-15% per person (Jacobs 2018).

This course is suitable for individuals and organisations and requires no prerequisite qualifications.

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