Worthing & Adur Eco Summit

Share this Article

Around 250 Eco Warriors from 18 different schools attended the Eco Summit event where they heard from Key Note Speaker Emma Pinchbeck (Head of Climate Change and Energy - WWF UK) 10 surprising things about Climate Change that she has learned in her job. Pupils then split into small groups where they attended a number of fun and interactive workshop sessions many of which had a Climate Change theme or linked their environmental or sustainability themed workshops to current Climate issues.

In addition there was also an Eco Video Competition for E.Y.E. Project 'member ' schools. Shoreham College won £40 gardening vouchers donated by Zenergi for their video showing inspiring eco activities within school such as an energy saving initiative to buy an acre of rainforest.

At the end of the day pupils were asked to write comments about their day on cardboard leaves which were then hung on a dead tree, bringing it 'back to life'. Here are just some of the wonderful pupil feedback comments:

‘Best school day ever’

‘It was really nice! The things we learned were useful and now I’ll find way to save the planet!’

‘The E.Y.E. Project Eco Summit was a fun, unique way to learn about staying environmentally friendly and making a difference. I really enjoyed it!’
