Three Climate Action Advisors are smiling at the camera.

Is your school looking for support to become zero carbon?

As part of the Let’s Go Zero campaign our team of Climate Action Advisors are here to give free and tailored advice to help green England’s school buildings, transport, menus and more.

What is a Climate Action Advisor?

Climate Action Advisors are independent experts, who offer free support for schools, colleges, and nurseries across England. We support schools to understand their carbon impact, make effective plans, and find funding and resources. We work with schools of any size, even those that are just starting their sustainability journey. We also spotlight local opportunities for how schools can work together.
