New Carbon Literacy course for Community Councils

10 March 2023

New Carbon Literacy course for Community Councils

The Carbon Literacy Project is hosting a free webinar to mark the launch of their new Parish, Town and Community Councils Toolkit Course.

The Toolkit Course will help community councillors understand the urgency and scale of the climate emergency and develop an awareness of which actions will have the greatest impact in the drive to achieve net zero emissions. It will also empower them to support local people to make informed choices and act in their local community’s best interests.

The initial development of this Toolkit Course was funded by the UK Government Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and the materials are available for certified Carbon Literacy training within Community Councils.

The training course covers a day’s worth of learning and action planning and has been co-written, reviewed and piloted by a panel of local authorities, ensuring the latest and best sectoral materials are used. It consists of slides, activity resources, a comprehensive trainer manual and a ‘getting started’ pack.
