Venue Northumbria University

Full information on the Carbon Literacy Training is available here.

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 help 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 climate change
  • Social equity & climate change
  • What we need to do to meet the Paris Agreement targets and achieve a zero carbon society
  • What you can do to act on climate change – in your personal life and at university / in your future job role
  • Strategies and skills for communicating action on climate change

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 training, and plan to run several events over the next few months.

The training was developed by Green Gown Award winners Manchester Metropolitan University and is certified by the Carbon Literacy Project.

The aim of this project is to get staff (academics and professional services) and students of Universities Carbon Literate within a short time frame - and most importantly 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 will be making the course materials available to all attendees once they have received their certification.
