Sustainability and Climate Change course banner

How is your school responding to the climate and nature emergencies?

The School Strikes for Climate and numerous surveys show that large numbers of young people globally do not believe their education is preparing them for a changing and uncertain future. The Department for Education’s ‘Sustainability and Climate Change Strategy’ wants all schools to appoint a Sustainability and Climate Change Coordinator and to put in place a Climate Action Plan by 2025.

This training session will help school coordinators to develop a whole-school approach to sustainability and climate change.
In the context of sustainable development, wellbeing and the climate and nature emergencies It looks at linking:

  • Culture
  • Curriculum
  • Campus
  • Community (along with Futures – careers)

– input from Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust on how to make your school nature friendly.
