About The Event
Pupils and teachers want to see climate change more widely taught and discussed in school.
Designed by teachers, the Green Schools Project aims to do just that. Its Zero Carbon Schools programme contains a comprehensive set of session plans, activities and support to make it happen.
This cross-curricular programme for Years 4 – 8 has links to science, geography, maths, English, PSHE and art and will assist pupils in:
- Learning more about climate change and feel empowered to take action in their school community
- Developing leadership, communication, problem solving and teamwork skills
- Calculating an estimate of their school’s carbon emissions
- Leading meaningful projects to reduce the school’s carbon footprint
Founder and former teacher Henry Greenwood will talk through the Green Schools Project and how your school or your child's school can become more proactive in engaging young people with some of the most pressing issues of our time.
The event is free but do register so we know how many chairs to put out.
