Carbon literacy - student opportunity

Posted by bv39 at Jan 21, 2020 12:00 PM |
As part of the University of Leicester Responsible Sustainability Strategy, we are offering the opportunity to current Leicester students to become carbon literacy trained! This is a great opportunity to encourage students to make a real difference to climate change.

LEICS get ‘Carbon Literate’ in partnership with De Montfort University to get our city acting on climate change:

We recognise the reality of the climate emergency that we are facing on a global and a community level. An increasing number of people want to take green individual action but are unsure how. The University of Leicester believes that the best way to tackle the climate emergency is by working together with our members within the city.

To meet this urgent need, The University of Leicester and De Montfort University is running a joint Carbon Literacy training session in February 2020. This aims to support students to take meaningful steps and enable them to work together for collective action on the climate emergency.

A city council member will run the Carbon Literacy workshop, and are designed to be interactive, fun and informative. Stressing the positive opportunities available to make a difference and enabling participants to leave with their own plans for meaningful action.

When and how can I take part?
The training will consist of a 4 hour workshop with a 2 hour self-reflection followed after watching the ‘Climate Crisis’ Film. The workshop training will occur on Thursday 13th February 2020 starting at 9:00AM – 1PM.

The Carbon Literacy training session will occur in Charles Wilson 409 (Garendon) with a 9am prompt start. Catering will be provided on this occasion.

Students can register their interest by signing up at:

or email Saja Elmishri (please also email Saja to advise of any dietary or accessibility needs).

Make sure to sign up, as places are quite limited for this day. If you have any other inquiries, including if you wish to attend on a later date, please contact Saja Elmishri at
