What makes us unique?

Interactive learning

This course teaches Carbon Literacy via the medium of games. This means it is interactive, engaging and most importantly fun- the opposite of death by PowerPoint. Our method of learning provides a unique and fuller learning experience leaving you and your cohort feeling empowered in your ability to make changes.

The interactivity of the course meant I was able to take in more information this way. Menti was a great way to engage with the presentation – I’ll be using it in the future.’

Scientific credibility

We take our course content seriously and base it on the scientific data from the book ‘How Bad Are Bananas?’ by Mike Berners-Lee, the most up-to-date compendium of carbon footprint research in the UK.

‘I really thought the game we played was a really effective tool for getting carbon conversations about carbon literacy going. Surprised to learn that there are massive differences in carbon footprint of food/items’

Learning that lasts

How many courses have you been on where the information leaves your head as soon as the course finishes? Presenting the facts is not enough. We use the ‘Carbon Footprint Game’ and facilitation techniques to engage your mind and emotions ensuring a deep understanding of the material.

‘Overall it was an interesting and informative day. I came away from the session with not only new knowledge, but also a different approach and outlook towards climate change.’

Sector engagement

You will get to engage with a variety of Sustainability Leaders from different sectors. You will all have carbon literacy education in common but will offer varying views and perspectives which will enhance your learning experience.
