Climate Change Training & Information
As part of our commitment to improve resident’s knowledge of the climate emergency, we will be offering and signposting a range of resources and programmes to suit all levels of learner across different platforms.
The issues around climate change have a lot of jargon and understanding it all can be tricky, so here are a few useful links that might help:
- Climate Coalition Jargon Buster
- BBC climate change glossary
- Climate Basics: Your carbon footprint explained - BBC News
We also love this simple summary by Dr Kimberly Nicholas that can be found on 350.org.
Climate Science basics:

Interested in finding out the carbon footprint of your town, village or the district as a whole?
The Impact Community Carbon Calculator is a great tool which shows just that, breaking the emission data down into different segments such as housing, food and diet and travel. The tool also provides a handy PDF report which explains the emissions breakdown and poses questions to help you act and reduce them.
