Carbon Literacy Train the Trainer course with Lighthouse Sustainability banner.

To make the drastic carbon reductions that are needed around the world, we need a global population that is educated, engaged and empowered to make the necessary changes. That’s why we believe Carbon Literacy training is so important – and why we need to build an army of trainers to deliver it.

The Lighthouse Carbon Literacy – Train the Trainer course is designed to prepare you for delivering Carbon Literacy training, and support you on your journey to becoming a Carbon Literacy Trainer (CLT).
