Leaf on Red Background

This informative and interactive Music Education Carbon Literacy Certified training course will provide you with an awareness of the climate-related costs and impacts of you and your organisation’s activities and the ability and motivation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Is this course right for me?

This course is aimed at anyone working in the music education sector who is looking to increase their awareness of carbon dioxide costs, impacts, and most importantly how to reduce emissions. The course would be especially useful for anyone who has a responsibility for sustainability and carbon reduction within their role and/or leaders who are able to impact change. Our Carbon Literacy trainers work in music education and understand the nuances and challenges of the sector.
The course will empower you to take climate action and give you the confidence to initiate change within your organisation. It will also give you the knowledge, skills and confidence to act to reduce your carbon emissions to support the UKs Net Zero target.

What’s on offer?

Carbon Literate individuals understand how climate change will affect them, both geographically and locally. Individuals who receive Carbon Literacy training typically realise carbon savings of 5-15%.
The aims of the course are:

  • To gain an understanding of the different greenhouse gases, where they come from and the impact they are having on our climate
  • To acquire a sense of urgency about the climate emergency
  • To understand how climate change is affecting the music education sector
  • To know how you can reduce your carbon footprint
  • To empower you to take action and influence others

  • 2x 3-hour online sessions
