Speaker Profile

Following feedback from our schools, we are delighted to launch our NEW Gateway Alliance Sustainability Network. This FREE introductory 2-hour online session with Let’s Go Zero Climate Action Advisor, Jo Pettifer will support schools wherever they are on their sustainability journey with the latest DfE updates, requirements for schools and lots of supportive ideas, tools and case studies.

 Jo will talk about the imperative that, as schools, we take action on reducing our carbon emissions – not just for the environment, but for all the co-benefits of reducing costs, supporting pupils’ personal development, community wellbeing, and improving biodiversity and nature. She will guide us through updates on the DfE Sustainability Strategy, our requirement to nominate a sustainability lead and get an action plan in place – but also the amazing support that is now available to schools to achieve this. Jo will talk about the Climate Action Advisers programme, the National Education Nature Park, The Count Your Carbon Tool and lots more free support, plus she will showcase case studies of schools who have taken action. Wherever you are on your sustainability journey, there will be plenty here for you to take away!
