Carbon Literacy for Shetland

Register now to attend two-day Carbon Literacy for Communities course in Lerwick.

We’re very pleased to offer representatives of community led-organisations across Shetland the chance to attend a two-day Carbon Literacy training course hosted in Lerwick on 6 and 7 February. The training is accredited by the award winning Carbon Literacy Project in Manchester. Carbon Literacy means having an instinctive understanding of the carbon impacts of our activities, and being able to make informed choices about the most energy and resource efficient and lower carbon options available to us.

Over the two-days we’ll cover the basics of climate science, look at current and likely impacts of a changing climate, explore how to communicate climate change, look at where carbon emissions come from and explore ways to encourage and support others to take steps to reduce their carbon footprint.

The training is delivered by Keep Scotland Beautiful as part of the Capacity Building Programme we run through our management of the Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) on behalf of the Scottish Government. 

Attendance on the course is free for representatives of community led-organisations across Shetland interested in taking action on climate change, but participants will be asked to cover the cost of certification (£10 plus VAT).

We were very pleased to have Dave Coleman, Managing Director of The Carbon Literacy Project address the recent CCF Gathering in Edinburgh. His afternoon plenary session included more about The Carbon Literacy Project and ways in which people in a variety of countries have used the training to make links between their own lives and take practical action on climate change.You can watch his address below.

You can view more about the training and register to attend via the events section of the CCF website. The training takes place on 6 and 7 February from 9:30 - 16:00 at Islesburgh Complex, King Harald St, Lerwick, ZE1 0EQ.
