Carbon Literacy Pioneers

HOME, Manchester

We have organised another Carbon Literacy Trainers ‘Pioneers Network’ meet-up at HOME (2 Tony Wilson Place, Manchester, M15 4FN) in central Manchester.

The Pioneers Network is an informal space for facilitators, trainers and consultants, (formally certified or not), delivering CL training to any audience, to come together to meet, exchange experiences, share best practice from across the UK, set up collaborations, hear from a few expert guests, and get the latest information on the Carbon Literacy movement directly from The Project.

5.30pm+        Our regular but infrequent “Cooler Drinks”, where we simply meet informally and you can meet not just other trainers, but organisations rolling out CL, officers and staff responsible for implementing it, members of the CL team, and other friends from the wider Carbon Literacy network. If you are unable to attend the Pioneers event but can make it to Cooler drinks later on then it would be great to see you there! Do let us know.

Deadline for CLO applications

8 February, 2019

In March 2019 we will be holding our second Carbon Literacy Awards! We are aligning the awards with the Greater Manchester (GM) Green Summit in support of GM’s ‘zero carbon by 2038’ aim. Engaging with Carbon Literacy and becoming a Carbon Literate Organisation (CLO) is a fantastic way for organisations to accelerate their climate-change action, show their commitment to the low carbon agenda, and help reach GM’s shared goal.

Whether you’re based in Greater Manchester or further afield, have been rolling out Carbon Literacy for years or only just come across it, a rapid shift to zero carbon is what the science requires of every person, product, and organisation. So start 2019 as you mean to go on, and use Carbon Literacy to bring about a low carbon culture for your people. Contact us by email – info@carbonliteracy.com or by phone – 0161 298 1782 and we can help and advise you on the most effective ways to accredit your people and organisation.

To make the deadline for the next wave of Carbon Literate Organisation accreditations, applications must be complete and submitted to The Project, with the appropriate fee, by 6 pm on Friday 8th February 2019.
