The Diocesan Environment Group (DEG) is considering a proposal by The Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) to deliver carbon literacy training for a group of interested people across our Diocese. CAT, founded in 1974, is an internationally renowned environmental charity, world-leading eco-centre and one of the foremost providers of postgraduate environmental education in the UK.

For the past 16 years, CAT’s Zero Carbon Britain (ZCB) project has been building on this experience of developing and sharing positive solutions for a sustainable future, producing research and reports which offer solutions for achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions.

The DEG who would like to offer the training to anyone interested in being more involved in making our Diocese and our Parishes more sustainable. The training will be delivered online via two half day sessions. We are seeking funding for the training for up to 30 people initially.

Carbon Literacy is “… 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”. (Carbon Literacy Project).

If you are interested in receiving this training, please complete the form opposite and share with anyone you think might also be interested. Many thanks.
