Climate change is one of the greatest challenges we are currently facing and it will affect all aspects of society.

By attending this workshop, 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
  • Strategies and skills for communicating action on climate change

Carbon Literacy training consists of two parts:
