Climate Justice Revolution, an award-winning environment club at Worle Community School Academy, has joined the Let’s Go Zero campaign.
Let’s Go Zero is uniting schools across Britain to represent the voice of students to Government ready for the COP26 global United Nations summit in Glasgow in November.
It is calling for the policy changes and investment needed to make every school in the country zero carbon by 2030.
Climate Justice Revolution in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, has gone from being a small club of 4 in 2019 to becoming semi finalists, in the international Global Social Leaders competition involving over 600 teams from 105 countries.
Leader Jack Clark, aged 16, said “We are delighted to join the Let’s Go Zero campaign.
“Our students are passionate to make a difference on this planet, and we want to add our voice along side the others to make urgent changes to help make every school zero carbon by 2030.”
Worle Community School Academy has recently installed two electric car chargers – building on its huge reputation as an award-winning eco-school.
They won a prestigious award for environment travel to school with enthusiastic students picking up the prize.
They already have electric bikes, cycle training, bike fixing, a travel ‘champion’ and excellent walking and road safety skills.
Jack also formed his own environmental magazine, The Green Gazette.
Nigel Topping, the UK Government’s High-Level Champion for Climate Action COP26, said: “Schools play a fundamental role in educating and empowering our children to give them a brighter future.
“That’s why it’s so exciting to see schools across the UK coming together to become carbon zero by 2030 and to make this future safe, healthy and resilient for our future generations.”
