        This cohort left me with three invaluable gifts: a humbling wake up call on the science and logistics of renewable energy, an insight into how many people are dedicated to climate action and the tools needed to influence lasting change. If you're looking for a way to maximise your climate action, this is it!

Course syllabus


Why corporations are key to tackle the climate crisis

We will start by taking a look at the big picture, what is at stake and how climate change is reshaping the rules of business. We will explore systems dynamics and the role played by corporations. We will discuss how organisations can truly become part of the solution, regardless of their sector and business model. 


Creating momentum in your organisation

We will explore how to strategise and organise on climate within your company. We will discuss proven methods and techniques to influence stakeholders and mobilise colleagues to feel motivated and empowered to act. We’ll practice having productive climate conversations


The business case for climate

You will learn how to demonstrate the business case for climate action, and how to connect climate goals with broader business goals. We will review case studies examples and role play talking to different stakeholders. 


Energy - Switching to 100% Renewables

In our first deep dive series, we take a look at one of the most significant goals a company can take on to reduce the impact of its operations: switching to 100% renewable energy. We’ll explore why this is a priority for companies, what it means to commit to this goal, and the different pathways available to companies. 


Emissions - Developing a meaningful climate program

The second deep dive series is dedicated to corporate greenhouse gas emissions. Learn what it takes to develop a credible net zero plan, and how to help your company take impactful and immediate action towards decarbonisation. 


Money - Aligning investments with a safe climate future

Investments provide a major opportunity to scale impact. Learn how companies can align their investments - starting with superannuation funds - with a safe climate future, and the short and long term benefits that come from doing so. 


Advocacy - Using influence to shape policy and drive systemic change

Staying on the side line is no longer an option. In the last deep dive series we will explore how companies can use their influence to drive policy change, and how employees can push their company to step up and be more vocal about climate. 


Developing your climate voice

Working on change takes courage and confidence. We will help you build your influence potential, increase your communication and leadership skills, and use storytelling to communicate more effectively. 


Building your roadmap and driving action

Sometimes taking the first step is the hardest. You will identify the biggest opportunities for your organisation to make an impact and work on your plan of action to make change happen. 


Graduation Week

We will celebrate our learnings and achievements, share our roadmaps for change and get feedback from the community.
