Session 1 of 4 - 8th RMER Conference

In these times when the world as we knew it has undergone instantaneous change, there is no better time to focus on changes that will make the world a better place for all and link the Covid 19 recovery with a transition to a low-carbon economy while addressing social inequalities at the same time.

This Carbon Literacy Training Programme equips you with the information and skills needed to make these high-impact changes in your work for example research, teaching or consultancy work in order to reduce carbon emissions along with addressing multiple other SDGs. A certificate is given upon full participation and completion of the training.

The four sessions cover:

1. Positive Futures Scenarios and Climate Justice
2. Climate Science and the matching high impact climate solutions
3. Carbon calculation and individual action
4. Climate Change Mitigation: a systems approach
5. Your own Action Plan

The Carbon Literacy Training for Business Schools (CLT4BS) was developed by Nottingham Business School, Nottingham Trent University (NBS), UK in collaboration with the PRME Champions, the PRME Working Group on Climate Change, oikos International, and The Carbon Literacy Project.

Led by Professor Petra Molthan-Hill from NBS and facilitators from all over the world, this training will take place in October - November 2021, with the first session taking place on 21 October at the 8th RMER Conference at XJTLU in China, followed by three sessions on 4, 11, and 18 November.

Complete all four sessions and an assessment for a chance to become certified as Carbon Literate. After this, you could go on to train others in Carbon Literacy.
