Manchester Metropolitan University says it’s leading the world when it comes to teaching students to become “carbon literate”.
Students studying Masters degrees in events, hospitality, food and tourism management in the Department of Food and Tourism Management have become the first in the world to gain a Carbon Literacy Certificate as part of their university course. The teaching programme was externally accredited, and the certificates are awarded by an independent low-carbon future charity, Cooler Projects.
NAEE President, Bill Scott, has commented on this story recently in his University of Bath blog, wondering whether some of the claims being made might be overblown. What do you think?
