**This free project is open to all students and staff from De Montfort University and the University of Leicester**

In February 2019, Leicester City Council declared a climate emergency. We are developing a climate emergency programme of action with the aim of the city becoming zero carbon. In order to raise awareness throughout the community of Leicester, we are using the Carbon Literacy Project to issue university students and staff with carbon literacy accreditation. Accredited students and staff can then deliver carbon literacy training in schools across the Leicester community and beyond. This exciting project is being delivered in the 2019-20 academic year.
