- Are you responsible for setting carbon reduction targets?
- Do you need to secure buy-in from colleagues and bring the whole workforce on board?
- Do you have an interest in climate change and realise you need to know more about it and do something in response?
If you have answered yes to any of these questions you will find attending this course is the ideal approach to educate the whole workforce and empower them to respond to the very real challenges of climate change.
On successful completion of the course, all participants will receive a certificate from the Carbon Literacy Trust confirming that they:
- have a sound, basic understanding of the causes and consequences of climate change
- will be able to evaluate the contributions they make to greenhouse gas emissions
- can identify the opportunities they have to take positive action at home and in work to tackle the causes
- are able to adapt to the consequences of accelerated climate change.
This course is for individuals from any member of CHC that aims to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions.
Ideally, those in a position to make decisions on whether Carbon Literacy is useful for your organisation.
This is a unique opportunity to learn with like-minded individuals and develop a set of practical responses to the challenge of climate change. This will ultimately save your organisation money and make it more resilient, improve the well-being of your tenants, improve the organisation’s reputation, enthuse and motivate staff.
Anyone can become Carbon literate!
The Carbon Literacy Project aims to ensure that every citizen receives at least one day’s worth of training so that they understand the links between human activity and climate change while empowering individuals, communities and organisations to take action to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gasses.
The National Museum of Wales, Grwp Cynefin and Public Health Wales have all done our course. It is now your chance to join a growing movement.
“Public Health Wales is committed to being an exemplar public body in the Well-being of Future Generations Act, which includes contributing to a low carbon society for the ‘prosperous Wales’ well-being goal. We are already using our learning from the course to set and meet our environmental sustainability action plan”. Richard Lewis, Programme Manager, Health and Sustainability Hub.
