course structure and content


We aim to balance the harsh facts of climate change with a 'human story' and solution-based learning. It can take significant emotional skills for participants to balance any associated grief, anxiety and guilt with the motivation to take action. We encourage participants to develop their emotional intelligence (EQ) when learning to effectively engage in climate change. Studies suggest it’s not enough to simply rely on scientific information when it comes to transformational action. According to the Committee on Climate Change, it requires new ambitious narratives that inspire public engagement and behavior change. We believe the music industry is in a unique position to use its creativity to promote such narratives on a global scale.

Course Structure

Our carbon literacy course is structured with narrative 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.
