Girl-on-shoulders
Our Mission

We believe the UK music industry can become a climate leader due to its unique cultural influence. But first it must ensure its own commitments are aligned with emission reduction targets.

certificate3

COURSE MODULES

The training consists of 3 modules

MODULE 1

What is the problem?

We explore the science behind climate change.

MODULE 2

What are the consequences?

We explore the impacts of climate change on a local and global level.

MODULE 3

What are the solutions?

We explore the actions being taken locally, globally and within the music industry.

Research suggests the human brain is more likely to accept information when structured as narrative (with a beginning, middle and end). Our carbon literacy course is structured with this in mind. It describes the problem, lays out the consequences and then talks about solutions. The final element is crucial because without an option to respond to the impacts of climate change, audiences can feel overwhelmed. 

COURSE CONTENT

A variety of learning styles are used throughout the course. Emphasis is placed on group enquiry to encourage learners to find their own answers and solutions. This helps to maximise engagement and participation. Course content includes:

Why the climate crisis is an urgent challenge

Why the urgency?



The impacts of climate change on a local and global level

Inequalities involved in the climate crisis

Climate change and inequality


Actions being taken at a local and global level
