Schools and colleges all contribute to the green house gases in our environment. The energy and water used, waste produced and the traveling involved in getting to and from schools, become a part of the schools carbon footprint. Targeting these areas and implementing a reduction is key to not only making your school kinder to the planet, but also creates an inspiring and empowering place for students to learn.
One of the most effective ways of bringing down the carbon emissions is for a school to become an ‘Eco School’. This month I will be introducing the ideas of sustainability to lower classes of Shoreham Beach Primary School for their Eco week keeping them on track for the Eco Schools Silver Flag award.
