Responsible Management Education 

Addressing the global climate crisis in the curriculum is one way business schools can demonstrate the impact they have on society (AASCB Standard IX). This climate literacy workshop profiles a cutting-edge experiential learning curriculum that provides participants (students, community members, and employees) with the knowledge to tackle environmental and social issues and ways to cope with future challenges they will face as employees, managers, and citizens.

The Carbon Literacy Training developed by Nottingham Business School (Nottingham Trent University) in collaboration with the UN PRME Champions, Oikos International, and the Carbon Literacy Project, uses an experiential learning approach that highlights six dimensions:

1) The science behind the climate crisis
2) The impact different sectors such as food have on our climate and vice versa
3) Climate change mitigation tools for different disciplines/functions
4) Solutions with the highest impact
5) Strategies and skills for communicating and/or teaching climate actions
6) Personal possibilities to take action privately and in future roles
