No plans to train Council staff in carbon literacy… #Manchester #climate #debacle

So, in January the Executive Member for the Environment told a committee of councillors that she was taking personal charge of carbon literacy training. Six weeks later MCFly requested, among other things;

 A copy of the document/documents that exist that lay out how the various directorates are intending to increase the number of carbon literate staff to, say, 50% by such and such a date. i.e. I am interested to know what the Council intends to DO to increase carbon literacy rates, given that on 3rd January 2017 the Executive Member for the Environment told a scrutiny committee that she was going to take personal leadership of the carbon literacy training.)

In late March we go this reply-

No such document currently exists. The focus since January 2017 has been on making e-learning and face-to- face training available to elected members. Making the training available to other Council staff will require the allocation of additional resources and detailed planning.

And so we will FOIA to find out what allocation of additional resources and detailed planning has occurred in the last two months. Watch this space…
