During a week of virtual activities before you head out to Europe, Pagoda will enrol each student onto their 4 digital skills courses, provide access to over 100 live employability themed events, invite the students to several live events over Zoom and much more.

Accredited by the Manchester-based Carbon Literacy Project, you will receive Carbon Literacy Training and an official certificate on completion.

Carbon Literacy is defined as ‚Äúan awareness of the carbon dioxide costs and impacts of everyday activities, and the ability and motivation to reduce emissions, on an individual, community and organisational basis.‚ÄĚ

More than 1700 organisations across the UK and internationally have empowered their teams with the award-winning Carbon Literacy training, including the NHS, the BBC, and Manchester City Council.

By incorporating Carbon Literacy Training in this programme, we aim to equip you with a solid educational foundation and understanding of the importance of cultivating a low carbon culture, and how to action this in your day-to-day life.

According to the International Energy Alliance’s (IEA) 2020 Tracking Transport Report, ships, planes and road-vehicles make up almost three-quarters of global transport emissions.

Urban and high-speed train is one of the most sustainable, long-distance transport methods. Eurostar’s high-speed trains are the most carbon efficient option when travelling between London and neighbouring European cities.

Travelling from London to Paris or Brussels via the Eurostar emits 90% less greenhouse gases than a short-haul flight, and 80% less in the case of London to Amsterdam.

We welcome you to take a look at Eurostar’s webpage on their carbon footprint for further details.

In line with the programme’s core ethos, transportation during the programme will be exclusively via public transport or walking.

To reflect the programme’s core ethos, participants will stay at high-quality hostels, which both support and demonstrate sustainable and environmental practices.

Each of the destination’s hostels are situated in, or are in close proximity to the city centre, with excellent public transport links.

Throughout the programme, alongside the other components Pagoda will arrange for the students taking part some guided tours around the best attractions the city has to offer.

All entrance fees will be covered as part of the programme and the group will be fully supported and supervised throughout the activity from the friendly member of Pagoda staff!

The fun doesn’t stop there! Don’t forget you will have some of the evenings throughout the programme to explore by yourself, so if there’s something in particular you’re wanting to tick off, you can hopefully do so in some of the free time!

Pagoda Projects have developed a series of skills courses set to encourage the development of the learner‚Äôs current skillset and improve their ‚Äėwork readiness‚Äô for a post-pandemic career.

These courses prepare the learner with the knowledge required to communicate effectively within an international working-group or team, tackle the job market with confidence and have a strong understanding of ‚Äėdigital‚Äô implications of work. As qualifications remain a vital measure of achievement, a certificate is provided following each completed Pagoda skills course.

Pagoda’s app is built for communities and allows users to engage, share and communicate with each other whilst maintaining a high level of privacy.

The university are funding a specific number of students to complete this programme from:

27th June – Virtual activities begin
3rd July – Travel from London to Europe
8th July – Travel back from Europe and arrive in London
