What do people mean when they say ‘climate action’?
How can we Cool the School? Ask your students to think about the main ways that your school contributes to climate change. They may wish to consider:
- How much electricity is used?
- How is waste being managed?
- What kind of transport is taken to and from school?
- What ways there might be to store carbon at the school
- How much do people at the school talk and think about climate change?
See our example (5mb pdf) for some ideas.
