This session will help school business leaders understand the action they can take in their schools to reduce their carbon impact.
By understanding the impact a school has, and the opportunities for change, school business leaders can show their students, parents and community that they are working to be zero carbon. They can understand their role as leaders in climate action and work to priorities the first and next steps for action.
We will explore real, practice examples of change and routes to overcome some of the barriers faced.
By the end of this session you will be inspired and ambitious, and know that you can take steps in your school to be leaders in climate action.
