Skip to 0 minutes and 8 seconds Hello. And a very warm welcome to Climate Literacy and Action for All. My name is Petra Molthan-Hill and I’m a Professor at Nottingham Business School at Nottingham Trent University, UK, and I am also leading CLT-ECOS climate action and literacy training, distributed worldwide. My name is Fiona Winfield. I’m a climate literacy trainer and I’m also, with Petra, joint author of The Handbook of Carbon Management. We’re here to guide you through each of the stages of this course. We’re going to start with looking at the bigger picture. We know that currently we’re heading towards a three degree Celsius increase and we really need to reduce that to 1.5 degrees.

During the course, we will include quizzes and lots of other activities, and you will also have a chance to exchange ideas with your fellow learners. One of the things that I find very interesting is the fact that a lot of people feel that they can make very little difference and it’s just not worth doing anything because what can one person do? What we want to do is to challenge that.
Skip to 1 minute and 19 seconds We actually want you to see that even the slightest small change can make a difference and that all these little changes add up to a lot more. You may already have a good understanding of the topics, or it might be all totally new for you. Whatever it is, we really hope that you will find, the course, an inspiration for you.
