WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR AND HOW WILL IT HELP?

As more policies emerge which will impact on both organisational and individual behaviours, this foundational course will be valuable for anyone who is lost in what can feel like overwhelming data, or opinion pieces on how to approach the climate emergency.

This course will recommend foundational courses of action, but instead of prescribing detailed action plans it will help you gain the foundational knowledge needed to navigate complexity, create action plans suitable to your circumstances and bring the communities around you along on the conversation.

The course will present engaging examples and be delivered in an interactive manner so that discussion of the topics allows for participants to learn through engagement and therefore feel comfortable explaining issues to others.

If there are specific topic areas you are interested in exploring please contact the trainer upon booking.

COURSE AIMS AND OBJECTIVES

  • Participants will feel confident to explain the basic science of the climate emergency to others
  • Participants will become familiar with key (regional and national) government commitments and legislation to address the climate emergency
  • Participants will feel they’ve been introduced to key areas of need in relation to the climate emergency and know how to relate these to carbon baselining and measurement
  • Participants will have been introduced to the ‘complex’ nature of the climate challenge, gaining an appreciation that there is often not a clear ‘right’ answer
  • Participants will have been introduced to the potential different attitudes to the climate emergency in their community and will have been shown tools to engage key stakeholders in conversations and action planning
