Climate Emergency is one of the most pressing issues of the present time. However, the general public including students and staff at business schools have limited understanding of climate change mitigation and how this could be integrated into teaching and research in a business school into every discipline. The Carbon Literacy Training for Business Schools (CLT4BS) is addressing this problem by accelerating this understanding across institutions using a ‘train the trainer’ approach, and providing high impact climate solutions that everyone can implement in daily life and work.
The training was developed by Nottingham Business School, Nottingham Trent University, UK in collaboration with the UN PRME Champions, the UN PRME Working Group on Climate Change, oikos International and the Carbon Literacy Project. It also includes an introduction to En-ROADS developed by Climate Interactive in collaboration with MIT Sloan and Ventana Systems. Led by Professor Petra Molthan-Hill from NBS and facilitators from all over the world, the next training is offered by PRME on four consecutive Wednesdays from 10.00-12.00 BST starting on Wednesday 18.11. Upon attending all four sessions and completing an assessment, participants can become trainers themselves and roll it out across their business schools and networks.
