About The Event
How can we make sure schools respond to the climate and ecological emergency?
The Islington Climate Centre hosts a vital event exploring the practical ways in which schools and colleges can respond to the climate and nature crisis.
The evening will consist of a panel between our three expert speakers followed by a sustained Q&A where educators and parents can work out practical next steps for their children's education.
Our speakers are:
Henry Greenwood, founder of the Green Schools Project, talks through the Zero Carbon Programme: how your school or your child's school can engage young people with pressing issues.
Lizzie Gimblett’s brilliant project Pupils Profit teaches pupils how to set up and operate sustainable Healthy Tuck Shops and new Eco refill businesses.
Suzanne Gibbon is programme coordinator at London-based climate charity Ashden, who leads on Let's Go Zero, a campaign calling on the government for support and funding to help all UK schools reach zero carbon by 2030. Working with a coalition of sustainable school organisations, Let's Go Zero is uniting schools, teachers, and young people to drive change and spark climate action in communities across the country, reducing emissions, increasing biodiversity, and safeguarding our planet for future generations.
Help your kids and students develop leadership and problem solving skills, nurture resilience, and empower students to take action, both in their schools and local communities.
COME, READY TO SHARE IDEAS AND SKILLS.
