What is the Carbon Literacy Project?
The Cambridge Carbon Literacy Project is an initiative delivering free formal training about the climate crisis, greenhouse gas emissions, and climate action to University of Cambridge students. It is based on the Carbon Literacy Trust’s Carbon Literacy Project course for higher education, which has been adapted by Cambridge students. The course is taught by Cambridge students, to fellow students. The Project itself was originally devised as an Engage for Change student’s project, and is a great example of how Engage for Change creates long-lasting student-led changes in the University’s sustainability space.
This is a fantastic opportunity for students to learn more about the climate emergency in a structured format, and receive an internationally recognised qualification to show to employers and peers.
The training requires 6 hours of training over 2 3-hour sessions, as well as 6 hours of self-study.
The Cambridge Carbon Literacy Project is facilitated by Cambridge Hub with support from Cambridge Zero.
