Event description

Description

Climate change is one of the most urgent and pressing challenges we face today.

4-8th November 2019 is the UK’s second Green GB Week; a week of events and activities inspiring businesses, schools, colleges, universities, community groups and charities to take action on tackling climate change. MDNW is making the pledge that, during Green GB Week, there will be a Carbon Literacy workshop running within 40 miles of every Accredited museum in the North West.

Join trainers Lynsey Jones and Kaye Hardyman from MDNW on this full day workshop which will give you an understanding of what climate change is, the scale of its effects, and how museums fit into the global, national and local picture to address climate change. You will become Carbon Literate by making an individual pledge, and an organisational pledge to take back to your museum, of what you can do, and is in your power to achieve, to make a significant difference to your carbon footprint.

In the words of a previous delegate, ‘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.’
