Current climate education is  inadequate 

Students aren't being prepared to face the effects of climate change, or taught to understand the solutions.

But we can change this

The UK education system needs to be reformed around climate justice and sustainability. We are campaigning to bring about this change.

Schools are in disrepair and inefficient.

School buildings are falling apart, they are damp, cold and unsafe - and yet consistently being denied funding by the Department for Education. We're calling for more funding to fix up and decarbonise schools. To evidence the damage of underfunding, we are creating an online gallery - help and send us photos of schools in disrepair.

Help us get better, greener school buildings
