Carbon Awareness is a short 4 hour course, enabling participants to explore questions around engaging with climate change in church life. It covers four key questions:

  1. Why does reducing our use of fossil fuels matter so much?
  2. What changes can we make that make the most difference?
  3. How we can encourage others to get involved?
  4. How does this fit into the whole of church life?

Participants will leave the course better equipped to make positive changes in their own household as well as feeling more confident to engage both with church, and others to encourage more people to take this seriously.

As a short 4 hour course, Carbon Awareness can either be delivered as a whole or split into two or more sessions.  This session will be on Saturday 11 November 2023, 9.30am-3pm at The Lounge, Church Centre, St Andrew’s Church, Station Road, Churchdown, GL3 2JT

Participants will need to spend 20 minutes before the course completing a simple carbon footprint tool: https://footprint.wwf.org.uk/

Please note that participants will need to brign their own lunch, but drinks are provided.

This training is free of charge, but spaces are limited so please sign up here by clicking the booking form here.
