Education at the Institute
The Global CCS Institute is committed to ensuring the global community has access to factual, easy-to-understand information, education and outreach resources that explain the important role carbon capture and storage (CCS) has to play in mitigating the harmful effects of climate change and providing energy security.
Together with Australia’s leading science organisation, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), we've created a suite of primary and secondary school resources – 'Introduction to carbon capture and storage'. In Australia, the CCS resources are a part of the CSIRO's low-emission technology series, CarbonKids. The CarbonKids program, which includes education resources on climate change, sustainability and energy technology, is delivered in more than 255 Australian schools.
We're now working on 'Energy in a Low-Carbon Future' education resources, focusing on the wider energy and climate change context for CCS. And we are collaborating with a variety of international education providers and governments to support the adaption of education materials to local contexts.

With the help of some of our CarbonKids schools in Australia the Global CCS Institute has put a climate change twist on two classic games. Check out our ‘Climate Change Snakes and Ladders’ and ‘Carbon Cards’ games – fun and simple activities to help recap student learning, and for an extra challenge download the ‘Do It Yourself’ versions to allow students to customise their own games.
