What you did

St Stephen"s has become the first school in BANES to declare a climate emergency and to pledge to become carbon neutral by 2030. 

Activity description


Schools are responding to the global youth climate strikes by examining how they could be channeling their pupil's passion into meaningful action.   For many, this means exploring the idea of declaring a climate emergency.

The schools below were the first in the UK to declare a climate emergency:   
Bristol Grammar School

Each responds to the emergency in their own way but all have a pupil-centred response, empowering students to take action and make positive change for the planet within their schools.
