The Climate Emergency: Becoming Carbon Literate

This virtual exchange is open for applications. The application deadline is 12:00 (UK Time) on 9 January 2023.

Students will work in intercultural groups to create personal and group action plans to reduce their carbon footprint and that of others. More specifically, the students will investigate the university's role in delivering a zero-carbon world and explore opportunities in their chosen career pathway within the context of the national Carbon Emergency Pledge.

 

The virtual exchange programme is co-led by Bee Gan, Head of Global Academic Development, and John Grant, a senior lecturer in Climate and Environment at Sheffield Hallam University. This is also led in conjunction with Dr Kevin Mac Gabhann, Associate Professor and Director of International Relations at EM Strasbourg, as well as students from EM Strasbourg who will also join the virtual programme.

You must attend all the sessions listed below; please check your timetable before applying.
