The UK Government, along with councils and organisations across the country, have declared a "Climate Emergency" and set deadlines to reduce our carbon emissions to net zero. We now need empowered citizens and organisations to get ready to tackle the problems we face as a community. Finding a common language is a good first step.
Anyone can learn to 'Speak Carbon'. Our accessible and easy to digest courses have been designed so that everyone gets something out of them: from beginners to seasoned campaigners.
‘Speaking Carbon’ allows people, businesses and organisations to understand and communicate effectively around the issues we face and collaborate on finding solutions together. Climate change and increasing greenhouse gas emissions are having an impact on our lives already, be it through extreme weather events or health impacts of air pollution. At the same time we need to build back a more resilient and kinder city to recover from the pandemic.
How we talk about all these issues affects people’s ability to act. 'Speak Carbon' is about telling positive stories around the Climate Emergency using online story-telling labs. These help build carbon literacy: ‘ the knowledge and capacity required to create a positive shift in how humankind lives, works and behaves in response to climate change.’
