Free Carbon Partners Training

Posted on 26-05-2011 by clive

A half day CPD session on climate change and the Carbon Partners model took place at DECSY on 22 June. It was very well received by the teachers who attended and several requested CPD for tbeir school or cluster. Carbon Partners is a new model for international school partnerships that is being trialled in South Yorkshire. The Carbon Partners model focuses on justice rather than charity and uses carbon footprinting to demonstrate the UK’s responsibility to take action on climate change.

The practical CPD session gives a chance to:
• Explore some of the current thinking around global school linking
• Understand climate change and the rationale behind the Carbon Partners model
• Gain practical advice on measuring your carbon footprint & calculating your school’s ‘carbon debt’
• Try out a range of teaching activities and resources to support the project.
• Hear from schools that have successfully implemented the model.

The session is aimed at schools /advisers who:
- have or are planning to develop international links
- want to move their link from a charity to a justice focus
- are looking to bring a global dimension to their Eco-schools/Sustainability work

This CPD session is free to schools in South Yorkshire and can be run subject to availability and expenses in other parts of the country. To find out more about this session, please email: bookings@decsy.org.uk or telephone 0114 241 2750
