In September 2018, Antonio Guiterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations, said of Climate Change, “We face a direct existential threat”. Independent scientists around the globe agree. With overwhelming evidence and robust analysis, this course will raise your awareness and equip you with the insights you need to meet the challenge we face in combatting climate change.
Whether your council has declared a climate emergency or not, we need to foster a low-carbon culture. We need citizens who understand the scale of the problem and feel empowered to accept and support climate mitigation policies. We need to take action on climate change.
All officers and councillors will be expected to contribute to a corporate climate emergency or climate change action plan. This Carbon Literacy training will provide support and information which will help in making a meaningful contribution.
By the end of the training you will:
· Understand and be able to explain the basic science of climate change and how climate change will affect us both globally and locally.
· Evaluate the climate change objectives in local authorities and analyse the impacts.
· Construct your own strategies to take action on climate change.
This course will be delivered online via Microsoft Teams. To access it, you will need a WiFi connection or mobile data hotspot. Downloading Microsoft Teams to your laptop, desktop or smart device will give a better performance and greater functionality throughout the day. This highly interactive training includes a mixture of presentations, video conferencing, group work, games, quizzes and video.
