We’re offering free places to our Zero Carbon Britain: Live online course taking place 17 – 18 November 2021 and our new Zero Carbon Britain: Carbon Literacy for Local Authorities courses, taking place 8 – 9 September 2021 and 1 November 2021. The free places are to help support those that would be otherwise unable to attend.

The online courses offer an in-depth look at CAT’s research project Zero Carbon Britain, exploring how we can create a modern, zero-emissions society possible using technology that is available today.

Zero Carbon Britain: Live online

Sessions will take place over two days, with live lectures covering a range of topics from renewable energy and energy efficiency to diets and land-use, looking at how these can work together to help us build a zero carbon future. Guest lectures will offer inspiring case studies, with previous guest lecturers including Rob Hopkins (founder of the Transition Network), Sonya Bedford (energy lawyer) and Andrew Simms (Coordinator of the Rapid Transition Alliance).

Online workshops will enable discussion and debate among participants, giving you the chance to connect with a network of professionals working across a variety of sectors.

Zero Carbon Britain: Carbon Literacy for Local Authorities

Specifically developed for those working in Local Authorities, this online course will cover the science of climate change, local and global impacts and how these will affect the work and duties of Local Authorities. We’ll look at low carbon objectives in the Local Authority sector and create an action plan to influence others. Your output from this course will be evaluated by the Carbon Literacy Project in order for you to be certified as​ Carbon Literate.

You can create the change

We have the technology to tackle climate change, but we need people with the skills and knowledge to make change happen at the necessary speed and scale.
