Abstract: We discuss an innovative action-learning course co-developed by the University of Northern British Columbia, the Prince George Chamber of Commerce (Canada) and local businesses. The Carbon and Energy Management course is an undergraduate/graduate course initiated by the Chamber to address an interest in climate change amongst local businesses/non-profits. Growing awareness of climate change and the need to better manage carbon has led to businesses eager to reduce greenhouse gases. Students, seeking to create a more sustainable world while gaining practical skills, create carbon footprint analyses for business clients. We discuss the course impacts on students as an action learning initiative.
