Carbon Literacy Action Day

Group Website Black 1

On Monday 4th December, we are taking part in the Carbon Literacy Action Day – the world’s largest climate education-and-action training event, coinciding with COP28. The Action Day is a global movement which sees the largest number of people simultaneously complete Carbon Literacy training in a single day. 

Becoming Carbon Literate means taking actionable steps towards tackling the climate emergency, and here at Brixworth Parish Council we are passionate about doing everything we can to mitigate the effects of climate change within our community. 

For us, taking actionable steps towards mitigating climate change is vital because we want to ensure a healthier planet for future generations, preserve biodiversity, and reduce the impact of extreme weather events on our communities and ecosystems.

Our planned activity for the Action Day is to deliver Carbon Literacy training to members of our officers, Councillors and working group members.

Taking part in the Carbon Literacy Action Day is important for us because it means:
✅ Fostering a greater understanding of the climate crisis, our carbon footprint and the different ways in which we can reduce our collective carbon impact.
✅ Creating a positive change in our organisation and/or industry.
✅ Developing a strong understanding of the global and local impacts of climate change.
✅ Working together with others to create lasting change and hope for all.
✅ Getting out of our comfort zone and making an impact by doing something extraordinary.
✅ Taking effective climate action and aspiring towards a low-carbon culture as much as we possibly can.
