Climate change is widely recognised as one of the greatest, and most urgent, challenges facing humankind. This challenge has been recognised internationally, within the UK, and within Bournemouth. As part of our Climate & Ecological Crisis Action Plan (CECAP), we want to make sure our students and staff feel both able and inspired to take climate action.
This Carbon Literacy course, created by Manchester Metropolitan University, will give you an overview of the basic science of climate change as well as an understanding of the actions required by governments, universities and individuals in order to avoid the worst impacts of climate change and set us on a path towards a more sustainable future.
In addition to completing some self-study materials, you will also be asked to attend two webinar sessions over two weeks. Webinars will take place 2pm – 5pm on Thursday 21st October and Monday 1st November. The course has five modules:
- Module 1 (self study): The basic science of climate change
- Module 2 (session 1 and self study): Exploring carbon footprints
- Module 3 (session 1): A zero carbon world
- Module 4 (session 2 and self study): Our wider influence
- Module 5 (session 2): Taking action
The course has been developed by the Department of Natural Sciences Carbon Literacy Team on behalf of the Environment Team at Manchester Metropolitan University. Upon completion of the course, you will receive a certificate from The Carbon Literacy Project.
The live webinars will be led by members of the BU Sustainability Team.
There are limited spots available on this course which will be allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis. SIGN UP HERE.
