Join me, Annie The Sustainable Life Coach, on a Carbon Literacy Training course designed for sole traders, freelancers and entrepreneurs who want to make a positive change and take action on climate change.

Carbon Literacy is “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.”

You will uncover:

  • the basics of climate change science
  • what’s already happening globally & locally
  • how your actions affect climate change
  • the tools & knowledge to reduce your impact at work and at home
  • how to build your own climate action plan for your business and lifestyle
  • how to begin creating your own Carbon Literacy course*

What will the course consist of?

Training will consist of a presentation along with group discussion, videos, quizzes and games. In addition, 1 hour of home-based activity is required to complete the course. At the end of the course, you will be able to create your own Carbon Literacy course for your organisation or audience*.
