Home » Free student place for the Zero Carbon Britain: Live online course

CAT is offering a free place to enable a student or recent graduate to attend a live online course exploring solutions for a Zero Carbon Britain.

The world needs to get to net zero greenhouse gas emissions as quickly as possible to help avoid the most dangerous levels of climate change. The two-day Zero Carbon Britain: Live online course provides an in-depth look at CAT’s research into how the UK can achieve a zero emissions society without relying on unproven future technologies, whilst still enjoying a modern lifestyle.

The winner will learn about the climate emergency, and explore practical and positive solutions across cultural, social, political and economic landscapes. They will attend live online lectures covering a range of topics from renewable energy and energy efficiency to diets and land-use, looking at how these can work together to help us build a zero carbon future. Through online workshops, the winner will also have the chance to connect with a network of professionals working in the field.

Paul Allen, CAT’s Zero Carbon Britain research coordinator, said:

“It’s so important that everyone is able to join the wave of actions rising to the climate emergency. CAT’s Zero Carbon Britain: Live online course offers skills and knowledge that could inspire the education and career path of someone just leaving college, sixth form or university.

It’s also a chance for campaigners of all ages to get skilled up in the solutions that could help their community create zero carbon action plans.” 

Applications for the free place are now open.  To enter, students should explain what they will do with the skills and knowledge they will gain from the course.

The winner will be judged by a panel of CAT staff and announced before the course. The Zero Carbon Britain: Live online course takes place 21 – 22 May 2020, and students must be over 16 to apply.
