Take your first step
towards becoming a
zero carbon school

Green Schools Project is on a mission to change the way schools respond to the climate and nature crisis.

Eco anxiety is on the rise. Young people feel increasingly powerless and worried about their future. Teachers want to do more to include the climate emergency in lessons but often don’t have the knowledge, confidence, or time they need to do it justice. We enable schools to embed climate education into lessons and become more sustainable through a range of training, support, and resources. This gives teachers and young people the tools they need to tackle the climate crisis at school, in their communities and throughout their lives. 

This is the defining issue of our time, and our young people will have to deal with the worst of the consequences. We need to act now to help schools get serious about sustainability, and give young people hope for a greener future.

  • Our pupils didn’t fully understand what was happening with climate change. Now that they understand and they know what the issues are, they’ve been much more conscientious about the environment.
