Continual Development as Carbon Literacy Partner in Wales

Cynnal Cymru-Sustain Wales are continuing to make progress and develop Carbon Literacy courses for different audiences and peer groups as the Official Partner of the Carbon Literacy Trust in Wales, supported by our friends in Manchester.

September saw us running an introductory session attended by colleagues from Acuity Legal, Dŵr Cymru, Coleg Y Cymoedd and H Factor. This was an open session to anybody interested in the training and we will be holding another session like this in October – if you are interested in attending, please get in touch with Rhodri. The session will last a full day and you will be able to get your Carbon Literacy certificate from this providing that learning takes place and you are able to complete the task.

For one week in October we will be delivering the course in North and South Wales for the Social Farms and Gardens Network and for Community Housing Cymru members.

Carbon Literacy Fun Facts

Over 1000 professionals from the independent television sector have now done Carbon Literacy training and many more UK TV programmes and dramas are certified by the BAFTA “Albert� carbon accounting and environmental management standard as a low carbon culture spreads through the sector.

8000 plus citizens across England, Wales, and Scotland have been certified Carbon Literate with an estimated 5-15% carbon savings per person linked to the actions committed to.
