The Carbon Literacy Project
An action the UN environment program should promote actively and get the certifications themselves. I guess it is not by chance that this platform is called “We don’t have time”, everyone here knows that we must do something the sooner the better at fighting climate change because there is neither planet B nor plan B.
Every action counts and here I want to present to you a great initiative created in the UK that is having great success and is clearly making a big difference I’m glad to present you with the

The Carbon Literacy Project is a unique project, working with everyone who lives, works or studies, to offer a day's worth of training to the Carbon Literacy Standard. Once Carbon Literate, we have an instinctive understanding of the carbon impacts of our activities, are able to make informed choices, and, driven by urgency, act positively to address climate change.
Today, over 72,452 individuals from over 5,404 organizations are Carbon Literate - are you? I also guess that all of you participating in this platform, have a vast culture and awareness of climate change but, here you’ll have the chance to increment and ensure that your knowledge, culture, and awareness will be at maximum level, you’ll also be asked to make a pledge and of course, influence others
Furthermore, for people who really want to enroll in climate action, there is the chance to become a Carbon Literacy facilitator, trainer, or consultant, and for companies, there is the chance as well to show their commitment by getting the C.L.O.’s (Carbon Literate Organization), among the 5,404 organizations today you’ll find Siemens, BASF, BBC, NHS, Kia, Palatine etc..)
The achievements this project has reached up to September are:

There are some more features you'll find there like the chance to create courses focused on particular audiences, in CLP there are some pre-accredited courses for sectors like the Health sector, Sports, social housing, Universities & Colleges
There is also a monthly newsletter in which you’ll have all the information from the new project, all the near-scheduled courses, and examples of pledges made.
By this, I encourage the UN environment program to enroll in this project, have the course, certificate all the staff, get the C.L.O as an organization and of course encourage and influence others to do so, it is a very effective way to increase the culture, compromise and awareness of a vast majority of the population
I am a Certified Carbon Literate myself and I have created a course certified by them oriented to the company’s management as in my opinion is the best way to cascade the information down in the organization, I could give the course (altruistically) or get in contact directly with CLP or other trainers

          The Carbon Literacy Project is a commendable initiative that equips individuals with a deep understanding of carbon impacts and empowers them to take meaningful climate action. It's heartening to see over 72,452 individuals and numerous organizations participating. Encouraging the UN Environment Program to actively promote and embrace this project, while becoming a Certified Carbon Literate Organization (C.L.O.), is a significant step towards enhancing global climate awareness and action. This initiative can play a pivotal role in increasing climate culture, commitment, and awareness on a broader scale. Your personal involvement and course creation for company management are excellent contributions to the cause.
