London Schools Climate Summit
The idea for a Schools Climate Summit came out of reflections after hosting London Climate Action Week 2020. Following a number of impressive events showcasing environmental efforts in schools and student-led climate initiatives, we wondered how we could enhance their impact. In particular, by using a ‘whole school’ approach, engaging school leaders, governors, business managers, teachers, students, staff and the local community. Our objective was to overcome fragmentation, address structural issues and build a cohesive sectoral response to the climate emergency, which could help drive delivery – at scale – in a global city of almost nine million people, with impacts far and wide.
