Event description
All school staff with an interest in becoming carbon literate, especially those teaching about climate change and the climate emergency

About this Event

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 school staff and students to become carbon literate. This one day course will enable participants to be carbon Literate and support them deliver their own course back in school

Why participate?

  • Gain a better understanding of how climate change will affect you and those around you
  • Fully funded accreditation
  • Acquire knowledge and skills to develop your own responses to lowering your carbon footprint, and the carbon footprint of others
  • Gain knowledge of delivering a course about basic climate change science to your students
  • Help to enable students to become carbon literate

Your commitments

  • Attend training in February 2020
  • Become an accredited Carbon Literate accredited and complete feedback about your experience
  • Create at least one significant action, as an individual, to reduce your own personal carbon footprint.
  • Create at least one significant action involving other people to reduce the collective footprint of your workplace, community or place of education.
  • Encourage your school to participate in carbon literacy either by delivering training yourself or arranging for Leicester City Council to deliver in-house

This project is free and open to all school staff
