Leeds Green Day

My colleague Steve Ruse who is leading our work on sustainable schools had invited me to the launch of our third annual Green Day...

Education Leeds is working in partnership with the Commission for Architechture and the Built Environment with 43 schools across the city who have all received a Green Day Activity Kit with ideas and suggestions alongside advice and practical support from partner agencies, businesses and voluntary and community groups. Schools have also been using a sustainability checklist developed by young people in Leeds to audit themselves to see how they can become sustainable schools. This brilliant project is critically important as we move into a more challenging financial climate where we must do more to recycle, reuse and renew, to save energy and water and to grow and source fruit and vegetables locally.
