These great young people wanted to tell me what they were doing and asked me what Education Leeds was doing as an organisation and how we were helping schools develop environmental education and understanding and become sustainable schools. EDucation Leeds has produced its own environmental sustainability statement which clearly demonstrates our commitment to working in partnership with our schools, partners, agencies and other organisations to improve outcomes, to look after the environment and to change behaviours and attitudes by caring for the environment. We are committed to:
- being environmentally sustainable;
- being an environmentally responsible organisation;
- developing and supporting sustainable schools;
- building brilliant learning places.
We undetsnd that this means that we must all take responsibility for our actions and I hope all our schools will join the 43 great schools like Crawshaw School to work to become sustainable schools and join us in the next celebration of this vital work next year when we celebrate Green Day together.
