Parish, Town and Community Councils Toolkit Course

9 March 2023

The Carbon Literacy Project is hosting a webinar on Monday 20th March at 10:30am – 12pm, to mark the launch of our new Parish, Town and Community Councils Toolkit course.

To address the scale of the climate emergency and meet net zero, sharing knowledge and expertise, showcasing positive behaviours, and championing best practice is crucial. If you are interested in climate education and training, this event is a must. Join us to find out more about the Toolkit course and hear from a selection of speakers working with parish, town and community councils, who will be sharing their experiences of delivering training using the new Toolkit course.

The Toolkit course provides officers and councillors with the opportunity to integrate climate change into their decision making, lead by example, and cascade environmentally sustainable and socially responsible values to galvanise action in their communities. The Toolkit course will ensure councillors and officers understand the urgency and scale of the climate emergency, and develop an awareness of which actions will have the greatest impact in the drive to achieve net zero emissions. It will also empower officers and councillors to support local people to make informed choices and act in their local community’s best interests.

The initial development of this Toolkit course was funded by the UK Government Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. The materials are available for certified carbon literacy training within parish, town and community councils.

The training covers a day’s worth of learning and action planning. The Toolkit course has been co-written, reviewed and piloted by a panel of councils, ensuring the latest and best sectoral materials are used. It consists of slides, activity resources, a comprehensive trainer manual and a ‘getting started’ pack.
