NALC supports The Carbon Literacy Project's new toolkit


The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) has welcomed The Carbon Literacy Project's new toolkit for local (parish and town) councils.

The toolkit equips councillors and officers to lead by example, cascade environmentally sustainable and socially responsible values, and engage residents in practical and transformative action. A panel of councils has reviewed and piloted it to help understand and promote Carbon Literacy. 

The Carbon Literacy Project enables the delivery of a day's worth of practical and relevant climate action training that maximises the learners' ability and motivation to contribute to tackling the climate crisis. As part of the training, all learners commit to taking two significant carbon reduction actions within their control, and successful learners are certified as Carbon Literate. Over 85,000 learners from over 6,000 organisations have certified Carbon Literate learners across all seven continents. At COP21, the UN recognised Carbon Literacy as one of 100 transformative action programs worldwide, which could materially change how we deal with climate change if rolled out at scale.
