What are Carbon Literacy Toolkits?

A growing range of Carbon Literacy Toolkits have been developed to maximise the ease and speed of adopting Carbon Literacy.

Using a certified Carbon Literacy Toolkit eliminates course development & accreditation time and costs as barriers to adoption. It also relieves the burden of updating training materials in line with developments in climate change science, impacts and policy.

A Carbon Literacy Toolkit is an off-the-shelf, fully accredited suite of courses that have been developed and tested by the sector, for the sector. Comprised of a slide deck, trainer manual, activity resources, and a getting started pack, these materials can be used to deliver Carbon Literacy courses even if you’re not a climate expert or experienced trainer.

With 17 courses spanning 9 unique sectors now available, our Toolkits ensure that organisations have the latest and best sectoral materials for delivering Carbon Literacy training.

All Carbon Literacy courses within our Toolkits are designed with a specific audience in mind, but the materials can be tailored, customised, and then reaccredited as a bespoke Carbon Literacy course.
