Carbon Literacy Training

Friday 28 February 2020

City Hall, Leicester 9am - 4pm

In February 2019, Leicester City Council declared a climate emergency. We are working to develop a climate emergency programme of action to reduce carbon with aim of the city becoming zero carbon.

In order to raise awareness through the community of Leicester we are using the Carbon Literacy Project as a way of accrediting school staff and students to become carbon literate. This one day course will enable participants to be carbon literate and support them in delivering their own course back in school.
