Mid Sussex to participate in Carbon Literacy Action Day
MSDC is proud to be participating in Carbon Literacy Action Day (CLAD) on 4th December by running its second Carbon Literacy staff training programme to mark the Carbon Literacy Project's annual day of action. This year, CLAD coincides with COP28, so while world leaders are negotiating and discussing global climate policy in Dubai, Carbon Literacy learners worldwide will be educating and empowering themselves on how to take meaningful action on climate change.
Carbon Literacy Training is a world-renowned training initiative. Becoming certified carbon literate requires undertaking training accredited by the Carbon Literacy Project. This focuses on building understanding of climate change and its impacts, why taking action is so important and what we can do as individuals, communities and in our workplaces to reduce our carbon footprints. By continuing to deliver Carbon Literacy Training to staff, MSDC is aiming to become an official Carbon Literate Organisation (CLO) to demonstrate their commitment to taking positive action on sustainability and achieving their net zero targets.
Councillor Ian Gibson, Cabinet Member for Sustainable Economy and Housing said: "We are pleased to support Carbon Literacy Action Day, empowering ourselves with the knowledge to take action on climate change. Mid Sussex District Council is dedicated to reducing our carbon footprint, paving the way toward a sustainable future for the region."
