The ‘Branch out in STEM’ courses are fully funded, meaning there’s no cost to the participant. This is possible thanks to funding from the European Social Fund and the delivery partners, which include the University of Derby, Nottingham Trent University, Derby College, Nottingham College, East Midlands Chamber of Commerce, Enable, Inspire and the Workers’ Educational Association.

What is this session about?

Climate change is one of the biggest global challenges of our time. Carbon emissions, one of the major drivers of global warming and climate change, are increasing primarily due to human activities such as burning fossil fuels and deforestation. The consequences which will have significant impact on the economy, society an the environment include rising sea levels, extreme weather, food and water shortages and the loss of biodiversity.

By becoming carbon literate, individuals and organisations can take action to reduce their carbon footprint, contribute to the global effort to mitigate climate change, and create a more sustainable future.

In this workshop, we will explore the intersection of carbon literacy and data science, and how data science can be used to better understand, analyse, and mitigate the impact of climate change. These techniques can provide insights into the causes and effects of climate change, help identify areas where emissions can be reduced, and evaluate the effectiveness of mitigation strategies. 

This short workshop will help you to begin to learn these skills with an aim of boosting wider STEM knowledge for participants and workplace skills.

Am I eligible to participate?

To participate in the programme you must meet the funding criteria requirements. This means you must work for a small to medium-sized business within the Derbyshire or Nottinghamshire (D2N2) region. Alternatively, you could be self-employed and registered as a sole trader within the D2N2 region.
