Community of like-minded professionals

The WorkforClimate Academy isn't just a climate education course, it's an infrastructure for action.

Jewish Climate Network have teamed up with WorkforClimate to deliver an exclusive Academy program to our members. We've created this advanced climate leadership program to help you amplify your impact, and lead change within your company.

This program is designed to provide climate education with a difference.

You'll learn the key concepts and skills to accelerate climate transformation within your company – regardless of your role. You don't need any pre-existing knowledge, and you don't need to work in sustainability to take part in this program.

We'll explore the most critical areas for companies to act on climate, and you will come away from the course with an infrastructure for action that will help you make rapid progress on emissions reduction goals.

This is an exclusive Jewish Climate Network facilitated cohort, where you'll have the opportunity to develop deeper connections within this community of practice.

Places are limited. This cohort commences on Tuesday 25th July 2023 and runs for 8 weeks. Enrol today to secure your place or download our guide to find out more.

The curriculum

If would love to help your company take more action on climate, but you have no idea where to start, this course will help you gain knowledge and apply it practically to the most critical areas for business: rapid emissions reduction planning, switching to renewable energy, reduced financed emissions and ethical investing, and advocating for climate.

This WorkforClimate Academy curriculum, facilitated in partnership with the Jewish Climate Network, has been designed to help employees understand the key areas, and apply them internally to accelerate a company's climate transformation.

Who is this course for?

The Academy is designed to educate and empower climate-concerned professionals who are at the start of their climate action at work. If you want to play a role in your company’s climate transformation, but don’t know where to begin or how to take it beyond its current actions, this course will orient you to the most critical areas for impact.

You don’t need to have any technical experience in sustainability to complete this program. All you need to bring is an open and motivated attitude, and a commitment to the journey.

Module 1

The first knowledge pillar sets the context of climate and business, and explains the role of corporations in solving the climate crisis. The first leadership module examines the ideas of 'what is mine to do?' and 'who am I as a climate leader?'

Module 2

This knowledge pillar looks at why companies should switch to 100% renewable energy, and how to start this change. The leadership module focuses on collaborating, and how to create a coalition of likeminded climate changemakers inside your company.

Module 3

The knowledge pillar dives deep into emissions reduction, and how to develop an ambitious climate program. The leadership pillar looks at how to use your scope of influence to drive change.

Module 4

We introduce the concept of 'Scope X' emissions, and how companies can drive a rapid transition to a low-carbon world. In the leadership pillar of this module, we explore what it takes to actually implement change inside of organisations.

Module 5

This knowledge pillar explores financed emissions and how businesses can align their investments and corporate cash for a climate-safe future. The leadership pillar explores the concept of leveraging external events to drive internal change.

Module 6

This module dives into lobbying and how to use corporate power to shape policy and drive systemic change. We also examine how your individual work as a climate intrapreneur is linked to systems change.
