On Monday 4 December 2023, to coincide with the UN COP28 Climate Negotiations, the Carbon Literacy Project is holding the biggest ever climate education-and-action training event.
As part of this Staffordshire University is running a ‘Big Community Carbon Literacy Training Day’. This event is open to the community of Shelton, as well as individuals from the wider city of Stoke-on-Trent and surrounding areas.
The training event will run from 10am to 2.30pm on Monday 4 December 2023 in Staffordshire University’s The Catalyst Building (Leek Road, Stoke-on-Trent) and it will include a low-carbon buffet lunch! Please arrive at 9.45am for a 10am start, and the event will take place in The Catalyst Gallery.
The free course will introduce you to the basics of climate change science and what you can do to reduce greenhouse gas emissions on an individual, community and organisational basis.
• Climate change the basics
• Carbon footprints
• Why we need to take action?
• Climate change communication
• What we can do help
The training is suitable for all with an interest in climate change. Participants who complete the training and a low carbon pledge form will be given the opportunity to become certified as ‘carbon literate’. There is a £10 fee for the certification. There is no fee for Staffordshire University students, and we can waive the fee for a limited number of low-income participants.
Staffordshire University is a Bronze Award Carbon Literate Organisation. This event is part of our commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in partnership with the community in which the University is based. There is a small amount of prep work to be completed for the workshop, details of which will be sent once you register for the event.
