School eco-club gets global praise

By Jill Dando News

An award-winning environment club at Worle Community School Academy, in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, has been praised across the world in a competition involving 105 nations.

Climate Justice Revolution won a commendation for Social Media Champions as well as being semi finalists in the international Global Social Leaders competition involving over 600 teams.

CJR has gone from being a small club of 4 in 2019 to becoming an inspirational group of 20 students who are all working to make the local community greener. 

Now they want to help smaller groups in and around Somerset to make change and are already working inside primary schools across Weston-super-Mare.

Chair of the new network, Jack Clark, aged 16, said “We are thrilled with the international recognition.

“Being a part of CJR has given me so many opportunities and the team and I are keen to ensure that everyone gets those chances.

“We can only tackle climate change if we work together.”

Worle Community School Academy has recently installed two electric car chargers – building on its huge reputation as an award-winning eco-school.

Earlier this year they won a prestigious award for environmental 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 earlier this year.
