Energy

We are working on updating our Energy theme. Schools that were awarded the Green Flag for the Litter and Waste theme in 2022 will move directly to the Water theme next, and re-visit the Energy theme at a later stage. This theme looks at the steps which can be taken to reduce energy consumption and raise awareness of climate change issues.
Sustainable Development Goals

In 2019/2020 Green-Schools students saved 29 million units of electricity – That’s enough to boil a kettle 290 million times!

Working on Green-Schools has helped to create awareness about the energy we use in our lives and where this comes from. The children realise that we can all help to save energy-even by taking small steps in our day to day lives and they have also taken this message home!
