We are thrilled to announce the continuation of our Sustainability Leaders’ Network following the resounding success of our Autumn term introductory meeting. Thanks to the overwhelming support and positive feedback from you, we are delighted to confirm that these 2 hour online network meetings will remain funded for schools to access FREE of charge for the rest of the academic year.


Join us for a 2 hour online Spring Network meeting where Jo Pettifer from ‘Let’s go Zero’ and Katy Newnham from ‘Wastebuster’ will delve deeper into empowering schools to lead the way towards a more sustainable future.

In this session Jo will give invaluable guidance released by the Department for Education (DfE) on developing sustainable leadership for schools, and expert tips for implementing behaviour change strategies tailored to school environments.

Katy will explain the benefits of engaging your school in “Switch Off Fortnight” and how Wastebuster’s FREE environmental education programme, and cycle of carbon saving campaigns, can help your school plan fun, engaging and impactful pupil led activity throughout the school year.
