Carbon Literacy for Chemistry Students

26th January 09:00 to 17:00
Develop a comprehensive understanding of the Climate Crisis - how it works and what we can do about it.

Please note this training opportunity is for Chemistry students only (all levels).

This one-day course will give you a comprehensive overview of climate change: the basic science behind it, its drivers and impacts, as well as an understanding of the actions required by individuals, communities, and organisations to avoid the worst impacts and set us on a path to a sustainable future. The activities are highly discussion-based and there will be ample opportunity to ask questions and share ideas.

After the training you will have the opportunity to apply for a Carbon Literacy certificate by demonstrating your knowledge of the necessary steps to achieve a zero-carbon world, as well making two pledges – one individual and one group – to actions that reduce your own and others’ carbon footprints.

If you have any additional learning requirements, please contact us as soon as you are able, at so we can determine how to best support you in undertaking this training.
