Carbon Literacy support for 400 students at Queen's

Queen’s University is taking part in a new Carbon Literacy initiative, which is being launched in October and will provide certified training to 400 students across the three Faculties on carbon literacy and climate action.

The project is being run in partnership with DAERA and Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful and will be offered to students from January 2022.

Welcoming the move, Professor David Jones said:  "The climate message is a crucial element of educating and preparing our young people for one of the biggest challenges of the future.  This targeted training is designed to go straight to the heart of the issue and, as Queen’s are committed to embedding sustainability in all we do, we are delighted to be part of this important, practical and innovative programme."
