about this course

What are the benefits?

Trusts and schools have a key role in helping to create a sustainable future for our planet. Governing boards should therefore consider how to promote environmental sustainability and ensure that their trusts and schools take relevant action.

This session will help participants start meaningful conversations about climate action planning in their organisation, exploring the governance role and deciding on the board’s next steps. By the end of the session, they will have the information and inspiration to place environmental considerations at the heart of their organisation’s decision-making. 

Ultimately it should lead to the development of a tangible climate action plan for the trust or school.
