Trade unions and the environment training

"Trade unions have a valuable role to play in mobilising people to address climate change.  I want to congratulate those union environmental reps who have demonstrated how negotiating skills and experience can be used to support environmental outcomes" Joan Ruddock, Climate Change Minister, 2007

This new course is designed for UCU members who wish to develop their understanding of climate change and ways to protect the environment through change at work.  It is intended to enable those taking part to develop as environment champions or green reps.
