Climate Literacy is about understanding what the impacts are, and will be, of an unsustainable use of carbon. It is also about having a clear idea on how carbon use can be reduced to sustainable levels, and what the benefits of a low carbon lifestyle can be to individuals, businesses and communities.

Jane Wilkinson, Education & Training Officer, Forward Coupar Angus (FCA) joins us to provide an insight into how FCA, through the introduction of the Climate Challenge Fund, is contributing to the government's desire to make Scotland carbon neutral and a global leader in preventing the worst effects of Climate Change.

Find out what you can do to reduce your carbon foot and how to encourage your friends and neighbours to do the same.

Jane will provide an interactive presentation which will help participants to understand the causes of Climate Change and what is meant by the term carbon footprint.  We will also look at Scottish Government legislation regarding Climate Change and how businesses can reduce their carbon footprint.
