Time: 9:30am - 12:30pm

Member - £99
Non-Member - £149

Facilitator - Alex Green

This session will help school leaders understand the action they can take in their schools to reduce their carbon impact and will cover any current funding and grant opportunities available for schools at this time.

By understanding the impact a school has, and the opportunities for change, school leaders can show their pupils, parents/carers and community that they are working to be zero carbon. They can understand their role as leaders in climate action and work to prioritise the first and next steps for action.

We will explore examples of change and routes to overcome some of the barriers faced.


School leaders - Head teachers, Deputy head teachers and SLT including SBLs. Primary, Secondary, Special and APs suitable.


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.  Delegates will have actions that they can take back into their schools and get started along their journey to being zero carbon.
