Whether working on a construction project or developing a new project our Climate Literacy Skills Bootcamp will provide you with new skills, knowledge and a holistic understanding of climate literacy, guided by the UN sustainability development goals.

What is covered in the Climate Literacy Bootcamp?

  • Systems thinking for sustainable change

  • Sustainable materials and Carbon footpinting
  • Designing for biodiversity and the role of healthy green spaces

There will be guided learning to help you apply the latest strategies, information and processes to develop an environmental and sustainable plan applicable to your own working environment.

What attendees of the Climate Bootcamp have to say: 

“I’d absolutely recommend the Skills Bootcamp, the content provided has been invaluable. I’ve already spoken to friends and colleagues to tell them how great the course is and not just those who work in the sustainability space. It would be really useful for everyone.” – Fiona Allen, Sustainability Manager

It offers a huge depth of information and a broad range of topics, so I think anybody who is in the business of specifying materials, working on building projects or even formulating policy would get a lot out of doing this course.” – Martha McSweeney, Business Owner
