  1. Sign Up for Free Carbon Literacy Training


  • The Cambridge Carbon Literacy Project is a free mini-programme open to all students, where you'll attend two online sessions to improve your understanding of carbon's role in the climate crisis. You'll learn about concepts around climate communication, zero carbon solutions for society, and measuring carbon footprints. Simply attend two sessions and take a pledge on climate action to receive a nationally recognised certificate from the Carbon Literacy Trust! The programme is non-selective, so anyone can join the 51,000 people nationwide who've completed the course already.

  • Learn more about the programme here or ask Jenny at jenny.perratt@cambridgehub.org; and sign up here! Deadline is midday, Friday 17 February.
