Cambridge Carbon Literacy applications OPEN for Easter Term 2023!

We want to educate as many students as possible about the climate emergency FREE of charge!

Any Cambridge student passionate about climate action or would like to learn more about the emergency facing us, please apply here to receive training from certified Carbon Literacy trainers!

What can I expect?

Briefly, you will receive FREE formal training, courtesy of Cambridge Zero, based on the new Carbon Literacy Project course for higher education, that has been adapted by Cambridge trainers. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about the climate emergency as well as an internationally renowned qualification.

How will it work?

Following the application process, students will receive training from a group of Carbon Literate students at the university. The training will be a mixture of self-study (4hrs) and two seminar sessions. The seminar dates and times are to be confirmed.

The training will cover 5 main modules:

  1. The science of climate change
  2. Carbon footprints
  3. A zero-carbon world
  4. Sustainability in higher education
  5. Taking climate action

Places are limited this round due to a waiting list from last term. Please do follow us on Facebook to hear first about future training opportunities we will be running in next year!

Who can apply

Any undergraduate, postgraduate or post-doc at the university! All levels of familiarity with the climate emergency are welcome! Any questions please don’t hesitate to contact – [email protected]


We are an inclusive organisation and can make reasonable adjustments to application processes, interviews, training sessions and other activities on a case-by-case basis. If you have particular accessibility needs, please do get in touch at [email protected]
