The Climate Change Response Institute (CCRI) has been formed by a group of professionals who have both strong education and training backgrounds and practical experience as climate change and sustainability consultants and advisers.
It is led by Associate Professor Chris Lund, a nationally and internationally recognised educator and trainer who also has extensive practical experience as a climate change and sustainability consultant and researcher. The institute's purpose is to provide practical knowledge and skills through training and capacity building in the areas of greenhouse gas reduction (mitigation), climate change effects and adaptation, and sustainability.
Our slogan Increasing Response Ability embodies our desire to empower people with the knowledge and skills that give them the ability to respond and the confidence to take responsibility for tackling climate change and enhancing the sustainability of their activities. We do this by providing climate change and sustainability training and capacity building in four main ways:
CCRI uses its own experienced team and key alliances of educational institutions and service providers to provide the best trainers and course content in the areas of climate change and sustainability. We use face- to-face facilitation and leading edge educational technology to provide practical, flexible delivery of training, skills development and capacity building.
As well as regularly offering formal courses in identified areas of need we can also create and offer training specifically for the in-house needs of your organisation.
“… companies in the fledgling green economy are struggling to find workers with the skills needed to perform the work that needs to be done. Indeed, there are signs that shortages of skilled labor could put the brakes on green expansion…There is thus a need to put appropriate education and training arrangements in place.”Green Jobs: Towards Decent Work in a Sustainable, Low-Carbon World.
