Teach Carbon Literacy

9th July to 10th July
What is climate change? What is driving it? What can we do about it? How can you be part of Manchester Met's Rollout of Carbon Literacy training?
Carbon Literacy training offers the chance for learners not only to develop their understanding of how climate change works and what is causing it, but also to empower themselves to take meaningful action, as individuals, and as collectives through their community and professional lives. Becoming a certified Carbon Literate citizen is a significant step in making positive changes for yourself, for Manchester Met, and for the planet.

Please note that this is not regular Carbon Literacy training. This training is for academic staff who will be embedding the training within their units and delivering the training to students in AY 24-25 (i.e. Carbon Literacy Champions and departmental colleagues supporting them. You should only sign up for this training if you have been asked by your Head of Department or departmental Carbon Literacy Champion to do so. If this does not apply to you but you would be interested in taking part, please email

Course outline:

This two-part 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.

Activities will be interspersed with advice and discussion on how to embed Carbon Literacy into your programme/department, and how best to deliver the training to your students. The course will also cover the nuts and bolts of admin, logistics, and how your students can gain a Carbon Literacy certificate.

After the training you will have the opportunity to apply for a Carbon Literacy certificate yourself, by:

  1. Demonstrating your knowledge of the necessary steps to achieve a zero-carbon world, and;
  2. By making two action pledges – one individual and one group – that will 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.
