Become Carbon Literate with Keep Scotland Beautiful

Free online Climate Emergency Training is being offered by environmental charity Keep Scotland Beautiful in June 2022.

Working with Skills Development Scotland, Keep Scotland Beautiful has developed the exciting programme of accredited Climate Emergency Training to help upskill Scotland’s workforce with the knowledge required to move towards a net zero society.

The free training is for anyone over the age of 25 living in Scotland who wants to learn more about the climate emergency and to understand how to respond to the responsibilities and opportunities ahead by becoming certified as Carbon Literate.

For individuals and organisations in the early stages of considering climate change impacts and planning for net zero, this training provides a fantastic opportunity to get started.

Catherine Gee, Deputy Chief Executive for Keep Scotland Beautiful, said:

“Everyone living and working in Scotland has a role to play in hitting our ambitious climate targets and this course offers a practical and immediate start on doing just that. Participants will find the training empowers them to take practical action on climate change and develop skills and experience they can apply in the workplace, no matter what their role or what level of an organisation they work at.”

The training is supported by Skills Development Scotland through the National Transition Training Fund, which is part of wider work related to Scotland’s Climate Emergency Skills Action Plan.

To be eligible to register for the Climate Emergency Training participants must be over the age of 25 and live in Scotland. Individuals are eligible for the training, subject to further eligibility checks and there is a limit of three people per organisation per training session.
