Training

We provide expert training and guidance for organisations and teams who want to be part of the movement that creates a fossil-free internet by 2030.

Many digital and tech teams remain unaware that if the internet was a country, it would be the seventh highest emitted of CO2 emissions in the world.

Using experienced trainers, engaging content and uplifting case studies we:

  • teach the facts and realities about how sustainable digital really is;
  • explore options for meaningful action at individual, organisation and systemic levels;
  • showcase how others are already making a difference successfully;
  • signpost to tools and experts you can work with on your journey.
