The Surrey wide Eco-Schools summits are planned for Tuesday 25th March, Wednesday the 2nd April and Thursday 3rd April. The summit will help your school work towards an Eco-School award. This event highlights the countywide effort to build a more sustainable future for Surrey’s schools. Eco-Schools is an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a framework to help embed these principles into the heart of school life.
The events will be held for Primary Schools at the Redhill Methodist Church on the 25th March (9.15pm to 12.15pm) and at the WWF offices in Woking on 2nd April (9.15am to 12.15pm). Due to demand we are also holding a third summit this year for Secondary schools in the Guildford Borough Council Offices 3rd April (1.30pm to 4.30pm). These meetings are being held as an opportunity for teaching staff to learn more about Eco-Schools and sustainability in general.
There will be speakers from Eco-schools, locally based environmental organisations, local schools and people in the field that can help schools to become more sustainable. There will be exciting workshops on Energy, Waste, Biodiversity and Eco-schools/ litter. For those schools that attended last year, there were will be new speakers and the workshops will be longer. There will also be a Q & A session about Eco-Schools and networking opportunities. Refreshments will also be served on the day.
