Carbon Awareness and Active Communities
It is extremely important to us all that we ensure our schools and those people designing our schools are fully engaged in raising awareness about climate change and the impact of energy consumption.
We need to encourage schools to adopt a whole school approach towards energy reduction, engaging with every member of the school to deeply embed a culture of energy reduction, with clear leadership from head teachers, governors and other key decision makers.
