Bookings are open for the Carbon Literacy for Industrial Heritage Museums course. West Midlands Museum Development (WMMD) and Museum Development East Midlands (MDEM) are partnering to deliver several rounds of training, using the Carbon Literacy for Museums Toolkit developed by Museum Development and the Carbon Literacy Trust as part of the national Roots and Branches project.
What is a Carbon Literacy course? The Carbon Literacy course will give you an understanding of what climate change is, the scale of its effects, and how museums fit into the global, national and local picture to address climate change. You become Carbon Literate by making an individual pledge, and an organisational pledge to take back to your museum, of what you can do, and is in your power to achieve, to make a significant difference to your carbon impact.
Please note that due to the project’s funding requirements from ACE priority for places will be given to museums who are Accredited or ‘Working Towards Accreditation’. If non-Accredited museums wish to attend then please contact Olvia Basterfield for details of available places at: firstname.lastname@example.org
