Engaging young minds on the importance of tackling climate change is really important, and so as part of this year’s Low Carbon Oxford Week festival we have been linking up schools in Oxford with local environmental experts to deliver a range of low carbon assemblies.
Local university teacher and ex-pupil Danny Dorling, will be at Wood Farm Primary on 19 June talking about the global geographical patterns to Pollution and Consumption, effects on life in other countries, and what their school was like in the 1970s ( a time when so few knew what we know now about Carbon Emissions and sustainability)
Local author and waste reduction guru Anna Pitt will be at Rose Hill Primary and St Ebbes Primary school talking about how to Love Food and Hate Waste and sharing her experiences of going plastic free. Anna is the author of 101 Ways to Live Cleaner and Greener for Free and runs waste workshops for schools.
Lois Muddiman is one of the founders of pioneering community group Low Carbon West Oxford and will be talking to children at West Oxford Primary School and St Barnabus CofE Primary School about climate change and what people are doing to tackle it locally.
