Module 1 Global Responsibility

In this module we look at the concept of global responsibility in relation to the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act. We explore our global connections and consider their meaning in our own lives. We examine our values and offer a range of activities that apply our values to globally responsible behaviours.  

Module 2 The Things We Buy

This module looks at the impact of our purchases on people and planet. We start with the concept of sustainability and how some organisations are beginning the transition to sustainable businesses. We then consider the challenge of Net Zero in relation to the things we buy. Finally, we look at the complexity of supply chains and embedded supply chain problems and offer steps workplaces can take to become more sustainable.

Module 3 The International Context

This module looks at the challenges to climate and social justice at a national and international level. We begin with a case study. Then we look in detail at the UK’s own processes, before finally exploring how international regulation is impacting governments’ abilities to implement climate policy.
