In April 2024 the National Youth Theatre team took part in Carbon Literacy Training with the Carbon Literacy Project at our Creative Production House.

Carbon Literacy is defined by the Carbon Literacy Project as: ‘An awareness of the carbon dioxide costs and impacts of everyday activities, and the ability and motivation to reduce emissions, on an individual, community and organisational basis.’ Training in Carbon Literacy results in the knowledge necessary to help create shifts in how we live and work; it has demonstrable effects on the ability to confidently communicate climate awareness, and in ensuring that positive actions feed directly into organisational policy.

The in-person training was led by external accredited trainer Jennifer Taillefer and covered the impacts of the climate emergency and what can be done to both diminish the effects, and reduce the ecological footprint of our productions, operations and building.
