Becoming a Climate-Smart Organisation

As climate-change is directly increasing poverty and inequalities, it is important for every organization to reduce its own greenhouse gas emissions. The aim of this online course is twofold: (1) creating understanding on why organisations (specifically Civil Society Organisations) must reduce their emissions and (2) providing useful tools and tips to reduce offices’ emissions.
