Carbon emissions are now so high that we have a global emergency that demands we take urgent action to reset the natural balance.

The Department of Agriculture, Environment & Rural Affairs has generously funded the development and roll out of the Carbon Literacy programmes across sectors.  Taking this step will ensure that a wide range of individuals and groups acrosss NI have the opportunity to learn more about the ugency of the climate change challenge as well as how to take action in their own lives to become part of the solution.

Carbon Literacy training consists of 8-10 hours of learning, delivered over three or four sessions via a blended learning experience, including live virtual sessions and self-study activities.

The training will offer you a way to gain a confident awareness of climate change science, and the climate impacts of our everyday actions. This interactive training will enable you to map your own carbon footprint, and gain an understanding of and motivation to reduce personal and organisational carbon emissions.

The course will develop an awareness of how climate change is affecting us now and will continue to affect us in the future unless we take urgent action. We will also look at a climate justice issues across the globe and explore how we can begin to discuss climate change with colleagues, families and friends.
