Directors play a key role in clubs, and your school could use a board of green directors to make big changes to their sustainability plan.
Teachers, experts, children - anyone can particpate. Show us the discussions and the results of using your voices.
What difference does it make?
It's hard to think of solutions and implement them on your own. We're strongest and most powerful when we work as a team.
What do you need?
- Students who want to make a difference
- Teachers who want to participate
- Cooperative headteacher
Step by step
Find other like-minded teachers and suggest the idea to your students.
Find a time and a place. What if it was a class activity? Sometimes the best ideas come from discussions and brainstorming. We work better together.
Plan what you want to talk about. Nature? Animals? What do you care about?
Try researching (and ask participants to do so) before the board meeting - always come prepared.
Discuss how you or your school could improve their green credentials. Set targets, deadlines, hold yourself and others accountable.
Sit back and admire the difference you've made. But not for long - climate change waits for no one.
Show a picture of your first board meeting. What was on the agenda?
It could be a whole class. But try electing leaders - people that will guide the discussion (or small discussions) and then summarise for everybody.
Use your voice - they need you just as much as you need them. Keep talking, keep asking - many reject change, but we use it to tackle climate change.
A step at a time, you may want to have a look at the Let's Go Zero activity.
