To celebrate the launch this week of the Interim Devon Carbon Plan our blog post is all about Net Zero Schools!
Launched at the Youth Climate Summit in November Let’s Go Zero 2030 is aiming to unite schools who are working to become carbon zero by 2030. Ten schools across Devon are already signed up – why not make yours next!
What is a Net Zero School?
A school that, on its site and through all its activities and procurement, does not contribute to climate change through carbon emissions. Schools that sign up at the website Let’s Go Zero 2030 will receive advice in producing actions that will reduce carbon in their schools in some key areas including energy use, travel, waste, water, procurement, food and school grounds.
Join these Devon schools in declaring that the future will be net zero!

If you’re a school in Exeter you can also sign up to the Schools Channel of the Net Zero Journey Slack, run by Exeter City Futures. This enables your school to be part of the discussion around becoming net zero by 2030. Find out more on the Exeter City Futures website.
Watch out on this website for more posts about teaching children about climate change and saving waste and energy in schools.
In the meantime why not email us if you have any good stories about something your school has done to reduce waste or carbon!
