Let’s Go Zero Schools Webinar

For over a year we’ve been campaigning to help schools become zero carbon by 2030, and now we want to share the experiences of some of our trailblazing schools so you can take your zero carbon journey to the next step!  

We are running monthly webinars, with each session including a small update from the Let’s Go Zero team followed by speakers from Let’s Go Zero schools talking about the actions they’ve taken to become zero carbon and a short Q&A session.  

Join us for insights and information into real climate action that schools are taking right now.  

Let’s Go Zero webinars are recorded so can be joined live or watched at a time that suits you.  

Found out more about the campaign here.
