What is the course about?
Bringing together the expertise of top-level scientists, educators, behavioural psychologists and expert communicators, alongside the community businesses that are delivering local solutions on the ground, you will come away with a solid understanding of the key climate concepts and the transforming landscape in which community businesses operate, as well as a toolkit of solutions and communication skills.
Why are we doing this training?
Power to Change recognises that the climate and nature crisis is a serious risk to the pursuit of our charitable aims. As a foundation, we have an important part to play in supporting community businesses to adapt and mitigate its effects, and help them harness the huge new market opportunities. Analysis of our existing data suggests Power to Change is already one of the largest funders of climate action grants in the UK. We aim to expand on this and we are also determined to build capacity of our team and stakeholders on the key causes and solutions of the climate and nature crisis, particularly within the community business sector. Which is why, during Great Big Green Week in September, we’re running this training for the entire community business market.
