Six amazing teams of students joined us in Conisbrough to learn more about what it means to run a successful campaign to reduce their community's impact on the environment. After mapping their communitities students identified the local action they wanted to take to have a global impact on climate change. Find out more about their campaign actions below!
Ercall Wood School is getting a new school built. Students are taking this opportunity to influence the building plans to ensure that it all stays just as sustainable as their own building and more. They want to ensure there is space for a vegetable garden, have an area to encourage more biodiversity and a green house. This campaign will ensure that sustainability remains at the core of the school.
Washwood Heath School will be creating a plastic bottle green house. They have an abandoned area in the school where they will convince the head to have the green house. They will travel to Ercall Wood school to learn more about how to build a plastic green house. They will convince the student council to spread this idea to their networks.
Icknield high school will be recruiting more members to join their campaign team. They want to tackle waste and make the school more eco-friendly. To try to convince more people to join the green team they will have cakes and badges.
Eastbury Comprehensive School will focus their campaign on cutting down waste in particular food waste. Previously the school has did a survey where they found out that the biggest production of waste came from food. They will organise a green day where they will invite potentially the feeder primary school and everyone who supports the campaign will get an eco-bracelet.
Brentside High School has identified recycling as a major issue in the school along with high levels of energy consumption. They are introducing a carbon free day to encourage teachers to take public transport to school instead of cars. They will be spreading this day on social networking sites and create videos that can be spread on youtube on the benefits of using more eco-friendly ways of transport.
Kingsmeads school has identified that the school could be saving money and let out less carbon emissions if staff travelled by bus to the various venues where they teach. At the moment staff is driving in their own cars to each venue. They also want their own vegetable patch where they can grow their own vegetables.
