Schools Energy & Climate Change Webinar
Monday 23 October 2023 1.27pm
A webinar organised to share to information on new free support that is now available for schools in Herefordshire. Led by Herefordshire Council’s Sustainability & Climate Change team, in partnership with Let’s Go Zero.
Thursday 9th November, 4pm
All Schools, Nurseries and Colleges in Herefordshire are invited to join a free Webinar to hear about support available to help schools to reduce energy bills, bid for funding, and also provide practical in-school climate change and nature education.
The support can be tailored to your school’s needs and time constraints.
This webinar will be suitable for:
School leaders & Early Years Leaders
School Eco Leads
Any staff looking to implement climate and nature education, from nursery through to college
School Property Managers
The webinar is part of Herefordshire Council’s Greener Footprints initiative.
To register for this free webinar, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org and include which school, nursery or college you are connected with.
Hear from Jo Pettifer, Let’s Go Zero, about the new Climate Action Advisor scheme now available for nurseries, schools and colleges.
Jo will explain how the scheme helps tackle some of the daily challenges faced by schools, and how it relates to the four key areas of Campus, Community, Curriculum and Culture.
The West & East Midlands is the first area to benefit from this free service which is being rolled out nationwide, so it is an opportunity for Herefordshire’s educational establishments to get early advantage!
There will also be information about a new School Carbon Footprinting tool, to support schools in understanding the individual areas that are impacting their school’s carbon footprint (and costs).
Plus hear from Herefordshire Council about free resources and services measures to reduce carbon and costs, as well as support for practical climate and nature education.
There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions, and raise any issues or challenges being faced by your school, nursery or college regarding climate change and energy use.
The webinar will last up to an hour – if you are unable to make it for the whole session, you are welcome to join whenever you are able.
Interested? Simply email email@example.com and we’ll send you the calendar link to join the webinar. Please let us know which school, nursery or college you are connected with.
