Following on from our sustainability club announcement, we are pleased to be partnering with GetZero – an organisation focused on creating climate action tools for students.
Last November, MEMF and GetZero were awarded a grant from Innovate UK to pilot a series of climate workshops in schools with an accompanying web-based app. This series will focus on the energy crisis whilst supporting the transition to NetZero schools.
Each workshop will tackle the energy and climate crisis through exploring the impact of behaviour changes with an accompanying web-based app that creates a digital twin of the students’ home to virtually map this impact. By the end of the programme, students will be equipped to create a sustainability schools strategy that they can deliver.
We are currently looking to work with teachers across all subjects to pilot a series of 8 extra-curricular workshops with students. Students will gain an understanding of the energy crisis, how it plays a part in the climate crisis and develop agency to take action at school, at home and in their future careers.
We are excited to have the support of Innovate UK – the government’s department for research and innovation and look forward to empowering students to develop their school’s NetZero strategy.
