Climate change is widely recognised as one of the greatest, and most urgent, challenges facing humankind. This challenge has been recognised internationally, within the UK, and within Manchester.
This course will give you an overview of the basic science of climate change as well as an understanding of the actions required by governments, businesses and individuals in order to avoid the worst impacts of climate change and set us on a path towards a more sustainable future.
The course consists of four blocks:
- Block 1: The Climate Change Challenge
- Block 2: A Zero Carbon World
- Block 3: Taking Action
- Block 4: Our Wider Influence
In addition to completing the online course material, you will also be asked to attend one webinar per block. You will be sent an invite to the webinars once you have enrolled on this course. Once you have completed and passed the course, you will be awarded with a Carbon Literacy certificate.
The course has been developed by the Department of Natural Sciences Carbon Literacy Team on behalf of the Environment Team. The live webinars will be led by CL Consultants Dr Rachel Dunk (Principal Lecturer) and Jane Mörk (Senior Research Assistant- CL), with discussions facilitated by Manchester Met’s student CL trainers.
