WEDNESDAY 9TH NOVEMBER 10:00 – 18:00 : CARBON LITERACY FOR PROFESSIONALS
Join us for a full one-day accredited Carbon Literacy training course designed for those working within professional services, who want to make a positive change and take action on climate change through their job role. This course is aimed specifically at those in the professional services industries, and will take you from the basics of climate science, and what is happening with the climate emergency; through to how this will impact everyone, enabling you to pledge relevant carbon reducing actions in your life, work & industry.
On successful completion of your Carbon Literacy training, after submitting your actions, you can become certified as ‘Carbon Literate’, joining more than 40,000 others, and including business leaders across multiple sectors. By taking part in this course, you will join businesses across the world in training their staff to become ‘Carbon Literate’, helping to embed a widespread low-carbon culture.
This session includes all refreshments and a sustainably sourced plant based lunch.
FRIDAY 11TH NOVEMBER 10:30 – 16:00 : PEAK DISTRICT HIKE WITH FRESHWALKS

We’ll move at a relaxed pace so you can enjoy the fabulous scenery and each other’s company, and to help foster a spirit of collaboration for the future. Our partner Freshwalks run’s regular public and private hikes for U.K Business Leaders and organisations to connect and network in nature.
