Zainab

Zainab bibi, current PhD student in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences, has become the first certified Carbon Literacy Trainer from the University of Manchester.

Carbon Literacy is a globally unique low-­carbon culture change initiative that takes form through a day’s worth of learning. Carbon Literacy learning encompasses climate change science, its effects and its solutions. It combines relevance and action, to drive low-­carbon choices wherever it takes root.

One of the key features of Carbon Literacy is that training is delivered by peers – pupil to pupil or by regular teachers in schools and colleges, by workmates, colleagues or peers in the workplace, or by friends and neighbours in the place you live.

Being certified trainer Zainab has joined the network of Carbon Literacy Trainers operating globally. Zainab is a passionate environmentalist and her past work has also received many accolades, including Queens Young Leaders Award, which was presented by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in June 2016 at Buckingham Palace.
