What is a Carbon Literacy training Jam?

Make your culture a catalyst for sustainability success
Great sustainability training should drive real change and give you a return on your investment. The last thing you want is a yawn-worthy, information-overload tick-box training course that puts people through the motions rather than inspires them to act (we’ve all been on those). Suck the fun and teamwork out of sustainability and you make achieving your objectives that bit harder.
