The Safer Travel Team would like to invite you to attend one of this year’s Eco-Schools Summits. The summits this year are funded by a DEFRA air quality grant and will have a strong focus on air quality but will also cover other environmental topics including waste/plastic pollution, sustainable travel, biodiversity, energy, and water.
What can you expect?
A networking day filled with guest speakers, eco workshops and a Market Place. The events will be delivered with a number of partners including SCC, Living Streets, London Sustainability Exchange, Surrey Waste team, Ashden LESS CO2, Local Water Authority and the Field Studies Council. The events highlight the countywide ventures to build a more sustainable future for Surrey’s schools.
The summits can help your school work towards an Eco-School award and will have a strong focus on what your school can do to tackle the growing problem of poor air quality. There will also be the opportunity for schools that have taken part in the Schools Air Quality Programme to celebrate their achievements made this academic year. There will be many representatives from locally based environmental organisations that can provide you with information and future support at our Market Place.
When and where?
The summits will be held between 09:00-14:00 at the following venues:
Wednesday 10th July 2019 - WWF’s Living Planet Centre, Woking
Friday 12th July 2019 - The Harlequin Theatre & Cinema, Redhill
