Display your pledges in school. This example shows how students at The King Alfred School, Burnham on Sea,
made their Save the Planet pledges.
‘ … a small group of year 11 students …
wanted to organise an event in school,
aiming to engage younger students in
the issue. They proposed a creative and
enjoyable lunchtime activity which would
get students to think about actions they
could take to reduce their carbon
footprints. With the Principal’s permission,
we bought white tiles and borrowed
pens from our science department so
that students could design tiles with
pledges on them. On 20th September
the sun shone on our event as over 40 students designed tiles. We photographed the tiles
and students took them home to use as coasters and to remind them of their pledges.’
SAVE OUR PLANET!
– pledges for COP26
So much more than changes in the weather
A call for all students in our schools and
colleges to make a pledge to reduce our
contribution to climate change.
