The Carbon Literacy (CL) project is a large-scale, climate change, education initiative that aims to provide everyone that lives, works and studies in Manchester with access to one days’ worth of Carbon Literacy training.
The project stems directly from the city’s climate change action plan, Manchester a Certain Future, formed as a direct result of the M:ACF’s aim of addressing culture change and to embed ‘low carbon thinking’ in the lifestyles and operations of the city culture’.
At Manchester Met, students have the opportunity to partake in this training for free and there are 6 upcoming dates throughout May & June. The training is delivered in 2 parts: e-learning and a face-to-face session and upon completion students receive a certificate.
Carbon Literacy Training is a great opportunity for students to develop their communication, group work and critical thinking skills whilst meeting students from other disciplines across the university.
