This resource, by Egni, one of our partners,  introduces pupils to the role that renewable energy can have in reducing carbon emissions and how community energy charities have established to help combat climate change in local communities.  This resource focuses particularly on the example of Awel Aman Tawe, a charity in the upper Aman Valley near Swansea.  This resource will take pupils on a journey in which they can see that individuals, communities and governments play an important role in reducing carbon emissions.

Activity 1: Renewable energy and climate change: where do you stand?
Activity 2: Awel Aman Tawe
