Carbon literacy training is an educational program designed to increase awareness and understanding of carbon emissions, climate change, and their associated impacts.

The Carbon Literacy Project defines Carbon Literacy as “an awareness of the carbon costs and impacts of everyday activities and the ability and motivation to reduce emissions, on an individual, community and organisational basis.”

It is appropriate to a wide range of audiences, including employees of businesses and government agencies, students, community members, and the general public.

The aim is to create a more informed and engaged society capable of making environmentally responsible choices and supporting sustainable policies and practices.

Topics will include the following;

  • Climate Science: Participants learn about the basic principles of climate science.
  • Carbon Emissions: Training provides information on the sources of carbon emissions.
  • Climate Change Impacts: Participants are educated about the potential consequences of climate change.
  • Mitigation and Adaptation: Carbon literacy training often explores strategies for reducing carbon emissions (mitigation) and adapting to the changes that are already occurring (adaptation).
  • Personal and Organizational Actions: The training encourages individuals and organizations to take concrete steps to reduce their carbon footprint.
  • Communication and Advocacy: The ability to spread the message is important aspect of Carbon Literacy.
