Carbon Literacy Training EAUC

Nottingham Trent University
12 November, 2019

Are you concerned about the climate crisis? Are you concerned about how businesses and societies will be affected by the climate crisis and want to find out ways you could still mitigate the risks?

The climate crisis is one of the greatest challenges we are currently facing, and it will affect all aspects of business and society and all other areas we might be concerned about such as poverty or loss of biodiversity. Consequently, graduates and employees with the know-how in tackling environmental and social issues to cope with future challenges have a competitive advantage in the job market.

By taking part in this training, you will gain an understanding of:

  • The basic science behind the climate crisis
  • The impact different sectors such as food have on our climate and vice versa
  • Climate Change mitigation tools for your discipline or/and function
  • Solutions with the highest impact
  • Strategies and skills for communicating and/or teaching climate actions
  • Your personal possibilities to take action privately and in your current/ future role

You will also receive a full certificate issued by The Carbon Literacy Trust in Manchester.

EAUC are pleased to be working in partnership to promote Carbon Literacy, and plan to run several events over the next few months.  This training was developed by Nottingham Business School (Nottingham Trent University) in collaboration with the UN PRME Champions, Oikos International, Manchester Metropolitan University and the Carbon Literacy Project.

Patagonia Action Works - Kendal Mountain Film Festival Friday

The Brewery Arts Centre
15 November, 2019

If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll know that things haven’t been going very well for the planet. It’s time to answer with action.

Patagonia is delighted that the UK launch of the ‘Patagonia Action Works’ – a new online platform to fight for the planet, is happening at Kendal Mountain Festival.

For almost 40 years, Patagonia has supported grassroots activists working to find solutions to the environmental crisis. But in this time of unprecedented threats, it’s often hard to know the best way to get involved. That’s why they’re connecting individuals with their grantees, in order to take action on the most pressing issues facing the world today.

Join us and hear from leading environmentalists associated with Patagonia. Learn about ‘Patagonia Action Works’ and see the events, petitions and skilled volunteering opportunities near you.

Sign up. Show up. Take Action.

They’re excited to welcome us, The Carbon Literacy Project, as well as other great NGO’s:

Save our Rivers

The River Trust

All proceeds of the ticket sales will be passed on to the NGOs associated with the session.

Green Great Britain Week 2019

Nationwide

4th – 8th November

Following on the success of last year, we’re calling on organisations to help us hold as many Carbon Literacy Training workshops throughout Green GB Week, as possible!

Do get in contact at info@carbonliteracy.com if you’d like to be involved, whether you’ve been delivering training for years, or have only just come across The Project.

Let us know how many sessions you hope to run, and to what organisation/s, and we’ll help you to do that.

EDIT: Green Great Britain Week is no longer officially happening on these dates (it’s been postponed due to Brexit preparations), however, the climate crisis wait for no-one, so we’re asking that organisations continue to plan and run CL training during this week.
