    According to the WWF, because:

    • Snow Leopard, Turtles and Polar Bears are awesome
    • You need your morning coffee fix
    • Coral reefs are amazing
    • We all need clean water
    • We all hate the sight of politicians in wellies(!!)
    • Rainforests are incredible
    • We all deserve to breathe clean air
    • Clean tech is exciting
    • We are all affected, no matter where in the world we live
    • For future generations.

    And according to the latest IPCC report:

    • "There is a rapidly closing window of opportunity to secure a liveable and sustainable future for all."


    What is Carbon Literacy?

    ‘An awareness of the carbon costs and impacts of everyday activities and the ability and motivation to reduce emissions, on an individual, community and organisational basis.’

    The term has had occasional use in scientific literature and casual usage but now is almost exclusively associated with The Carbon Literacy Project.

    Carbon Literacy is the knowledge and capacity required to create a positive shift in how we all live, work and behave in response to climate change.

    A Carbon Literate citizen understands how climate change will affect them and the people around them. A Carbon Literate citizen has acquired the knowledge and skills to develop their own responses to lowering their carbon footprint, and the carbon footprint of others, whilst having the confidence to share their Carbon Literacy.

    Reviews of previous courses

    " I completed Elena's course 'Just A Little Bit More Eco' course in 2022. It is a fantastic course which includes live workshops, reading and watching recommendations which is a fantastic way to support everyone's learning styles and keep us engaged. Elena is extremely knowledgeable on climate change and gives enough information to then turn the information into actions you can take within your own life.
    The course was so thoughtfully put together and Elena delivers the course in a friendly, relatable and accessible way for all participants. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and would recommend it to anyone as well as Elena as a brilliant workshop leader. Thanks Elena."

    "Elena has excellent teaching skills. Her courses are well thought out and engaging. The content is clear and gives the right balance of facts/figures with engaging stories and room for personal thought, reflection and group discussions. Doing this course gave me the confidence to start working with local groups and helped me realise that was what I needed to do personally to feel I was not alone in my concerns about the environment.

    Subsequently we have set up a community nature reserve in my local area and are running a programme of events this year to engage the community. Our most recent one was a session to build nest boxes - that was in February and several of them are now home to blue tit families. I have also submitted a bid to a local pollinator fund for a grant for further community workshops. Not to mention i have made friends from all walks of life in my local community, who share my concerns, which is really lovely."
