Free online climate change training for Central Bedfordshire residents


Central Bedfordshire Council is collaborating with the community and environmental charity, Groundwork East, and are excited to announce a new initiative offering free climate change training to our residents.

People will be able to book themselves onto an online course providing an introduction to Carbon Literacy completely free of charge – thanks to the government’s UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF). Spaces are limited and available on a ‘first come first served basis’.

The accredited course introduces people to the science behind climate change and equips learners with information and tools to take action in their own lives and communities. It features sections on greenhouse gases and their relation to climate, how the climate is likely to change, and the effect this could have in the UK and other parts of the world. Our knowledge on climate change is constantly changing and the course features a collation of up-to-date information with links back to original sources. This free e-learning module can be completed in your own time to develop your understanding of climate science, climate change and actions you can take to reduce your carbon footprint. You must complete the whole course by 31st March 2024 to receive your certificate. By signing up you will have access to administrative support and troubleshooting, giving you the best chance at completing the certification.

The online course is free for anyone living, working, or studying in the Central Bedfordshire area. Click here to book online.
