Carbon Literacy Training

Venue Nottingham Trent University

Are you concerned about the climate crisis? Are you concerned about how businesses and societies will be affected by the climate crisis and want to find out ways you could still mitigate the risks?

The climate crisis is one of the greatest challenges we are currently facing, and it will affect all aspects of business and society and all other areas we might be concerned about such as poverty or loss of biodiversity. Consequently, graduates and employees with the know-how in tackling environmental and social issues to cope with future challenges have a competitive advantage in the job market.

By taking part in this training, you will gain an understanding of:

  • The basic science behind the climate crisis
  • The impact different sectors such as food have on our climate and vice versa
  • Climate Change mitigation tools for your discipline or/and function
  • Solutions with the highest impact
  • Strategies and skills for communicating and/or teaching climate actions
  • Your personal possibilities to take action privately and in your current/ future role

You will also receive a full certificate issued by The Carbon Literacy Trust in Manchester.

EAUC are pleased to be working in partnership to promote Carbon Literacy, and plan to run several events over the next few months.  This training was developed by Nottingham Business School (Nottingham Trent University) in collaboration with the UN PRME Champions, Oikos International, Manchester Metropolitan University and the Carbon Literacy Project.

The aim of this project is to get academics, students and other employees of the University Carbon Literate within a short time frame and to get as many people as possible actively involved in embedding climate solutions in their own life and work. In order to do so we have chosen a train-the-trainer approach, so we will offer regional events inviting all the universities and business schools in the vicinity to train academics and students there so that they can become trainers in their own institution and/or involved in training other in other regions of the world.

The course materials will be available to all attendees after the course.  

​Please note, this training is now fully booked.  We will be scheduling further courses in the near future, please keep an eye on this section for future events.
