Schools take action: Let's Go Zero 2030

LET'S GO ZERO 2030 unites schools working to be carbon zero by 2030 to help safeguard the planet for future generations. 

Sounds ambitious, right? That's exactly the point. Programme Manager, Alex Green, states that this campaign is all about showing and driving ambition. By signing up, your school is committing to make changes without having to make promises or submit specific reports. You will get support along the way from coalition partners Global Action Plan, who will work out where the gaps are in your processes and policies, and how to approach a change in behaviour across your educational institution and “beyond the school gate”. You can read her full interview HERE.

The campaign only launched in 2020 but is gaining momentum with over 1100 schools now signed up. Teach The Future’s survey mentioned in our previous blog, shows that 70% of teachers felt they have not received adequate training to teach in more depth about climate change and the ecological crisis. Alex Green has noticed from the schools currently signed up that there is a “definite need for more skills and knowledge within schools so that site managers and senior leaders can understand in greater detail about energy management, carbon management, climate impact and climate education.”

At Study Experiences, we strive to create and provide events and experiences which will help shape the next generation. We can only do this by listening to what our children have to say and supporting educational providers in their mission to educate, nurture and inspire. This is why we created the Earth Summit 2022 and aim to hold this event annually on an ever-growing scale.

There is an abundance of eager young people who want to work in climate-related job roles, or who care what their future employers are doing to tackle the issues.

Ashden, the London-based charity who run Let’s Go Zero, advocate for every job to be a green job. In a BBC article released today, 22-year-old climate change student, Susannah Costley-White speaks about her internship with Ashden. She is working on a campaign which calls for “sustainability to be embedded as a statutory feature in careers guidance in UK schools by 2025”.

It also mentions LinkedIn’s first-ever Global Green Skills Report, released in February which shows that “job posts requiring green skills have been growing at 8% annually over the past five years, outpacing the 6% growth in green talent”.

There is a pressing need for teachers and students to acquire more knowledge and training to meet the demands of the future.

Whilst we wait to see if the government will back the Climate Emergency Education Bill which asks for climate change to be made mandatory across all subjects in the curriculum, we could all be doing more to develop our knowledge and prepare the next generation for their future and the future of the planet.

Time is running out to book places at our Earth Summit 2022 so please get in touch today to find out more. Show your students that you take their future and the future of the planet as seriously as they do.

Let’s learn and grow together.
