Carbon Literacy Training for Computing Students

23rd January to 26th January
Carbon Literacy is relevant climate change learning that leads to positivity and action towards reducing carbon emissions. It highlights the need for substantial change and supports you, to have a cascade effect on a much wider audience – whether it’s in your workplace, community, school, university, place of worship, or another setting.
