88% of charities are concerned about climate change and almost three-quarters agree that climate change has already impacted them or will in the future.  If you’re wondering how to bring climate action into your mission and role, this training is for you.

Charity Volunteers

Whatever your purpose, whoever your beneficiaries are, climate change is relevant. 

In this training, you will learn how to:

  • Identify the climate & sustainability challenges to your mission and work

  • Start mapping your carbon footprint and your ‘carbon handprint’ in order to maximise your impact​

  • Use systems thinking to identify opportunities and drive change as leaders

How the Course Runs...

Self Study

We’ll share a training pack for you to understand the basics of climate change and how it intersects with social issues and equity. You can complete this in your own time.

2 Hr Live Session

Our Education Officer/s will bring the resources to life, using the ACEVO Climate & Environmental Leadership Principles. With interactivity and guided discussion, you’ll gain a clearer picture of how climate change interacts with your organisation, where you can set your ambitions, and how you can act. This can be delivered online or in-person.

Post Session Resources

We want to ensure you're supported beyond our live training. We've collated a range of resources and tools to help guide you, in the short- to medium-term, in embedding what you've learnt into your practices and work.
