Event Details

The course is split over three modules. Each
module includes 1-2 hours of course work, to go through at your own time
and pace, and a 90-minute group webinar. We will be using Zoom for
delivering the webinars.

Module 1 – Climate Science and Impacts

This
module will cover the basics of the science behind “Global Warming” and
“Climate Change”. It will highlight the various “Greenhouse Gases” and
how these are emitted by human activities. It will also discuss some
of the current and potential future impacts at an international,
national and local level.

Module 2 – Climate Justice and Our Response

This
module will cover how the impacts of Climate Change are likely to
affect the most vulnerable and the least responsible in society. How we
are responding to the issue on an international, national and local
level.

Module 3 – Action and Communication

This
module will cover our own personal behaviours and how they can impact
climate change. We will also investigate how to make personal and group
behaviour changes that can help to contribute to tackling climate
change. The group webinar will discuss how we can best communicate and
inspire young people to respond to the issue.

On
completion of this online course you will have the opportunity to be
certified as Carbon Literate, this will involve completing a short
