Enhancing digital analytical skills for Climate Action and Monitoring
Climate action managers are the target group of CINAMON. While their exact job title varies – Sustainability Manager, CSR Manager (corporate social responsibility), ESG Manager (environmental social governance), Climate and Energy Officer – their occupational profile is clear: responsibility for climate action, climate communication and monitoring. Climate action managers work in municipalities, regional governments, or entities in the private and public sector – they are needed everywhere due to current and upcoming obligations of climate/sustainability reporting requirements in all sectors.
With the project CINAMON, Climate Alliance will strive to educate, skill up and empower climate action managers through the acquisition of digital competencies for climate action and communication in the field of mitigation and adaptation; and by building capacity to implement science-based processes with the help of digital services and tools to work in their respective work environment on greenhouse gas reduction and resilience. The project will deliver capacity building processes and leverage effects of digital services already available, often thanks to European funding, such as tools to account climate relevant data, calculate greenhouse gas emissions, develop conclusions for climate action measures, identify best practices etc. Trainees will be shown how to use those offerings for their climate monitoring and action work on the educational resource repository established in this project. Two newly developed e-learning courses (on climate action and campaigning and climate impact measurement), a digital Climate Action Repository and multiplier events (in person and online), will be the main project results that will raise digital skills of trainers and trainees. These offerings will be developed in close cooperation with a group of municipalities that will contribute as associated partners to the contents and test their praxis relevance.
CINAMON will consider itself a success if the project succeeds in promoting digital readiness for climate action and campaigning in local administrations as well as public and private institutions and companies and will raise the skills in data analysis and monitoring. Interested stakeholders are welcome to join the group of associated partners and thus be involved first-hand in the development and trial of the courses and the repository.
