Event description
For students with an interest in becoming Carbon Literate, especially education students as the project offers in-school course delivery.

About this Event

**This free project is free and open to all students from De Montfort University or the University of Leicester**

In February 2019, Leicester City Council declared a climate emergency. We are working to develop a climate emergency programme of action to reduce carbon with aim of the city becoming zero carbon.

In order to raise awareness through the community of Leicester we are using the Carbon Literacy Project as a way of accrediting university students to become carbon literate trainers who will deliver training to school students to make them carbon literate. This exciting project is being delivered in the 2019-20 academic year.
