How to take action for the climate in school

1) Get clued up

Watch our animation below, and use our assemblies and resources to find out what net zero means and why we are calling on the Government to commit to net zero emissions.

We want to celebrate the fact that children and young people care about the planet. Show your commitment by gathering in a zero shape and taking a photo. Send it to use and tell us you have taken part.  

Send us your Zero Hero photo

 

4) Ask your MP to be a Zero Hero too

Tell your MP why you care about climate change. Download our guide for speaking to your MP, and visit theyworkforyou.com to find out who your MP is, and invite them to visit your school or group.
