“The need to create more sustainable ways of living is becoming more and more important to all of us, and it not only effects the way we live, but the way we work. Having an understanding of the effects of climate change, and the importance of devising new and more sustainable ways of working, is an extremely employable skill, and this training gives you a great head start. I highly recommend it!” – Helen Lord, MMU Futures Manager
Manchester Metropolitan University have been one of the first organisations to provide training for our students, equipping them with the skills to help shape a low carbon future in support of Manchester City Council’s ‘Climate Change Action Plan’, which sets out to provide access for everyone who lives, works or studies in Manchester to a day’s worth of training in Carbon Literacy.
Climate change is one of the greatest challenges we are currently facing and it will affect all aspects of society. As a result of this, employers are increasingly realising the importance of employing staff with an awareness of environmental and social issues in order to cope with future challenges
By attending any of the four Carbon Literacy training sessions next month, you will gain an understanding of:
- The basic science behind climate change
- Social equity & climate change
- What you can do to act on climate change- both as an individual and in your future career
- Strategies and skills for communicating action on climate change to your peers
Carbon Literacy training is now compulsory for all students who want to achieve their Silver Award!
