Our Brief Summary of the government’s sustainability and climate change strategy for education and children’s services.
We also want to make head teachers, assistant heads, business leaders as well as teaching staff, aware of the latest government paper from April 2022 with our quick summary of what it includes. In the governments sustainability and climate change strategy for education and children’s services, it sets out its 4 strategic aims to reduce environmental footprint, to achieve net zero by 2030. It is compiled of short, medium, and longer-term actions that will enable us to make progress towards the government’s 25 Year Environment Plan.
The Rt Hon Nadhim Zahawi, MP, Secretary of State for Education stated “The challenge of climate change is formidable. For children and young people to meet it with determination, and not with despair, we must offer them not just truth, but also hope. Learners need to know the truth about climate change – through knowledge-rich education. They must also be given the hope that they can be agents of change, through hands-on activity and, as they progress, through guidance and programmes allowing them to pursue a green career pathway in their chosen field.”
It aims to engage directly with children and young people through education to increase:
- passion about the natural world
- actions to protect it
- influence within their communities
