As part of Manchester’s bid to become one of the first carbon literate cities, ‘My Planet and Me’ is a new interactive environmental awareness course designed and delivered by Stockport Homes.

After the concept of Carbon Literacy first came to light in 2014 at a Greater Manchester Authority event, housing providers came together to develop and deliver training specifically aimed at raising awareness around carbon production and its effects. Stockport Homes established a leading role within the group, helping to develop the training and provide strategic guidance on training delivery.

‘My Planet and Me’ is accredited to the Carbon Literacy Standard but also looks at wider environmental and sustainability issues. This course is aimed at anyone who has an interest in the environment and sustainability whether to develop your own knowledge or with a view to carrying out your own carbon literacy or environment training.

This will include:
• the science and impact of climate change;
• biodiversity, sustainability and air quality;
• waste and recycling;
• what’s happening at a local, regional, national and global level;
• what you can do to make a difference personally and within your organisation.

The course costs £125 + VAT per head and you can book up to five places. Refreshments and lunch are included and all attendees will receive an accredited Carbon Literacy Certificate.

The session will be held on Tuesday 25th September 2018 between 9:15am – 4:30pm at our head office. The address is:

2 Edward Street
