What you will study and achieve

Understanding the causes of climate change and becoming carbon literate is necessary but not sufficient to lead to action on climate change and related planetary emergencies. This is why our approach to training is based on identifying the most relevant information, summarised by respected experts (in many instances from their own research) and ensuring it is delivered using techniques and facilitators focused on building deep understanding and application to live business issues.

Students develop an implementation plan solving a climate change related issue facing their organisation.

• Course Introduction and the case for action
• Climate Science: Processes, causes and impacts
• The International and national policy context
• Climate Change Solutions: Management and implementation

Plus 1 full day workshop:
• Consolidating and revising the learning from Online Professional course
