Carbon Literacy Training

Why should local authority staff take part in Carbon Literacy training? 

To create a low carbon culture we need to foster citizens who understand the scale of the problem and feel empowered to take action on climate change as well as support and accept climate mitigation policies.

Our local authority staff are our greatest asset. This training will equip them with 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.

UNIT 1
The science behind climate change: Robust background information: the difference between weather and climate; greenhouse gases & the green-house effect; how the climate is changing; Climate change impacts in your local area.

UNIT 2
Global Climate Change Impacts: Understand policies globally, nationally and locally: the scientific consensus; the role of Local Councils; the policy position.

UNIT 3
Climate Change Action: Action to make a real difference: Carbon Foot-prints; actions to reduce your carbon footprint; emissions at work; what does a zero-carbon Local Authority look like; climate action in practice.

UNIT 4
Influence from the frontline: Tailored to frontline services: Actions to reduce carbon in your service; prioritising actions for greatest impact; developing & communicatng an action plan across your team, service or directorate.
