Are you based in South Cambridgeshire and care about your community and climate change? The Net Zero Now training scheme can help you identify how and where you can take action on climate change in your local community.
This free training course is designed to enable everyone, regardless of knowledge, skills or experience to participate. By the end of the programme participants will have the tools to get started on a carbon reduction initiative. This could be something as simple as setting up a new local clothes swap, or something as big as a community energy scheme.
Featuring 8 fortnightly sessions of online interactive learning and skill sharing, the course will connect you with like minded individuals and help you create an action plan for change.
The training will run June-October, with a 6 week break in the summer.
You may want to prepare your answers in advance before starting to work in the application form. It may help to download the full list of the application questions [PDF].

Approximately 60% of the changes needed to reach net zero by 2050 will require changes to the way we live our lives. We’ll need to reduce energy use, make changes to the way we travel, what we eat, how much we buy and how we dispose of things. This means that in the coming months and years each individual and community will need to find positive ways to adapt, change and thrive as we move towards net zero emissions.
Cambridge Carbon Footprint, with support from the South Cambridgeshire District Council Zero Carbon Communities fund, is excited to be launching Net Zero Now, a new scheme to help train and support community climate leaders across the district.
The project will focus on three key things:
There are many online sources of information and inspiration, but in our experience there is nothing that beats the personalised support that a local community of like-minded practitioners can provide.
