The focus of the training is to gain knowledge about climate change and the role of the Local Authority in responding to the impacts of climate change.
This training has been developed to engage with Local Authority outdoor staff to increase their awareness of the challenges posed by climate change, at the global, national and local scales. The training is designed to give participants an overview of climate change science and policy and where possible, each training course will be tailored specifically to focus on the participants particular area of work. Cross cutting issues will also be addressed e.g. water quality and biodiversity loss.
The training seeks to inform and empower participants to implement practical outdoor climate action measures as part of their role within the Local Authority, in delivering the Local Authority response to Climate Action. The training will also encourage participants to make a difference by contributing to positive changes that will benefit local communities and their surrounding natural environment.
