Carbon Literacy Training

This Carbon Literacy Training course delivered by Lighthouse Sustainability is to raise awareness of the carbon dioxide costs and impacts of everyday activities, and the ability and motivation to reduce emissions, on an individual, community and organisational basis (Carbon Literacy Project).

The Carbon Literacy Project was set up to give everyone, everywhere, a day of training on carbon literacy – and in doing so, empower people to make positive change. Today, over 45,000 individuals from over 2,000 organisations have certified as Carbon Literate and that number is rising fast.
