Rachel Coxcoon of ClimateGuide developed the elected members training course on which the Carbon Literacy Project Toolkit for councillors is based, and has been delivering courses to councils across England since mid-2020.
Make sure your leadership team has a shared understanding of the climate change problem, and a shared vision for tackling it. Rachel can deliver Carbon Literacy training courses for elected members and senior leadership teams at all levels of local government, whether that's a group of parish councils, or a major urban unitary council.
Rachel brings a unique blend of climate change expertise and real-world experience as a local government politician, to make these training days impactful and memorable.

Bespoke, non-certificated training on climate awareness can also be arranged, for specific topics such as procurement and planning.
“I found the clear style and competence of the presentations very convincing”
“Having attended the Carbon Literacy course with a number of other cabinet members and elected members, I am confident that it has stuck with them. Colleagues are more eloquent and more committed than ever to local action and also asking more of central government. As an individual, myself and others have renewed energy to talk about the change that is needed, and embed it to our home lives and professional lives. I am delighted that I pushed hard for a full day training, didn’t compromise and ensured that we as a council took on this training.”
“The trainer was excellent. A fantastic combination of knowledge about climate change and experience in council issues”.
“I just wanted to thank you and congratulate you on the quality of the carbon literacy training package you delivered on Friday. I was quite immersed and while I am generally well informed and passionate on climate change, still learnt a considerable amount”.
