About the Carbon Literacy Project
What is Carbon Literacy?
An awareness of the carbon costs and impacts of everyday activities and the ability and motivation to
reduce emissions, on an individual, community and organisational basis. Today, over 40,015 individuals from over 3,812 organisations are Carbon Literate - are you?
Developed in Manchester, the Carbon Literacy training has been developed to empower individuals, organisations and businesses to make a positive impact on climate change and help to influence others around you to drive action.
Carbon Literacy is a term used to describe an awareness of climate change, and the climate impacts of mankind’s everyday actions. The term has had occasional use in scientific literature and casual usage but now is almost exclusively associated with The Carbon Literacy Project.
Carbon Literacy is the knowledge and capacity required to create a positive shift in how mankind lives, works and behaves in response to climate change.
Learners who have completed a day’s worth of Carbon Literacy learning can be certified as ‘Carbon Literate’.
