Getting Started

A thousand mile journey start with the first step.....there are a number of schemes you can register with such as Eco Schools or you can consider the Sustainable Schools Framework. As a basic guide you should consider doing all of the items on the list below:

  1. establish a school climate change team with members representing teachers, pupils, govenors and parents
  2. weave climate change into the curriculum at all levels
  3. calculate the school's carbon footprint and set targets to reduce it
  4. have a set of climate change assemblies and arrange for the pupils to deliver content themselves
  5. take action within the school both in terms of physical changes and awareness raising.
