Carbon Literacy Training from Nottingham Business School focus of COP26 social movement

A Nottingham Business School (NBS) programme which offers Carbon Literacy Training to business Schools, universities and beyond will feature as part of a global social movement to coincide with the COP 26 UN Climate Change Conference.

Train the Millions – The Carbon Literacy Chain (CLC) has been launched by Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), a United Nations-supported initiative which has over 850 business schools as signatories worldwide and aims to raise the profile of sustainability in business schools around the world, and to equip today’s business students with the understanding and ability to deliver change. As a PRME Champion, NBS is committed to developing responsible leaders and acts as an example to other higher education institutions globally.

The Carbon Literacy Training for Business Schools programme was developed by NBS in collaboration with PRME Champions, the international student organization Oikos International, and The Carbon Literacy Project. As part of the training, learners explore high impact climate solutions, climate justice and climate science before devising significant actions for themselves, their business schools, partners, colleagues or/and fellow students.

The movement will encourage business schools to use the training within their own institutions in the lead up to, and during, the conference period. All the sessions will be represented on a digital world map.

Petra Molthan-Hill, Professor of Sustainable Management and Education for Sustainable Development at NBS, said: “We have already delivered our training to more than 350 people from business schools across the world, giving them the knowledge to become catalysts for change.

“This initiative from PRME hopes to motivate those with experience of the training to run additional sessions for their students, colleagues, partners and community members and grow the carbon literacy chain.”

The training will be celebrated on 1 November as part of a special event on Carbon Literacy Action Day – aligned with COP 26 and encompassing the training in other sectors including a NTU toolkit designed for universities. PRME will also be hosting an additional event on 11 November to continue the celebration, unveil the map and announce the winners of a selfie video competition which will run alongside Train the Millions.

COP 26 will be held in Glasgow from 31 October to 12 November 2021.
