Free Carbon Literacy training is being offered to up to 400 community group members across the Liverpool City Region, thanks to a grant from the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority’s Community Environment Fund.
Aiming to help local community groups tackle climate change the training will give learners an awareness of the carbon costs and impacts of everyday activities together with the ability and motivation to reduce harmful carbon emissions, on an individual and community basis.
The training is being provided by local charities Energy Projects Plus and Faiths4Change together with social enterprise Zero Carbon Liverpool.
Peter Owen, Chief Executive of Energy Projects Plus said: “We are really pleased to have received this important funding that will help us increase community action on climate change. By working together at community level we can achieve meaningful improvements to our local areas while tackling this global issue.”
By successfully completing a minimum of 8 hours’ worth of Carbon Literacy training, learners will also be declared ‘Carbon Literate’ and receive a certificate issued by the nationally recognised Carbon Literacy Project.
