Climate Solutions Professional
This course is imbued with the optimism that comes from tackling an issue, and focuses on solutions. It is aimed at time-poor managers, offering an easy, time-efficient route to understanding climate change.
Four online modules will short-cut vast amounts of literature and learning, providing a good basic understanding of the science, and focusing on the minimum essential information needed to respond. On completion of the online modules, participants will attend a workshop, delivered by the project partners.
After this workshop, participants will be invited to join a cross-sectoral network to allow long-term relationship building and sharing of expertise. They will also receive a certificate evidencing their personal and organisational commitment to climate change.
