The Carbon Literacy Project wouldn’t be where we are today without the help of our dedicated volunteer workforce which has given us their time and expertise over the years. In order to support the scale-up, we need Volunteer Project Workers who can offer anything from a regular day a week, to full-time project assignments.
"Volunteering with The Carbon Literacy Project has given me the opportunity to expand my knowledge and learn something new about climate change every day and gain many new skills along the way."
"There is a well developed volunteer support structure and the role offered substantial experience for my CV as well as being tailored to my personal goals. I left to work full-time as a copywriter with Media City based communications agency Media Agency Group, and used much of my experience from working with The Project."
"As an environmental graduate, volunteering with The Carbon Literacy Project has been such a positive and inspiring experience at a time where there is so much uncertainty about climate change. I was encouraged and supported to work on ongoing projects and any new ones that I expressed interest in. The skills and insight I have gained will be very useful for any future work that I go on to do."
"Volunteering for The Project has encouraged me to understand different industries and their perspectives. It has expanded my knowledge of climate change and my understanding of the importance of reducing our carbon footprint. It has also taught me a new skill set in terms of data management and teamwork. The great teamwork atmosphere in the office has motivated me to be better and encourage others."
"Volunteering for The Carbon Literacy Project was just overall a really great experience. I felt very supported in practising the design skills I came to develop, and the whole team was really friendly. I ended up learning loads just through swivelling my chair around and joining in with whatever the team was chatting about!"

We are taking action against climate change, and in doing so, we are taking very direct responsibility for our economy, our planet, and our way of life. We, therefore, ask that our volunteers and employees be registered to vote.
