ICN Schools Summit

Originally posted as: https://readingcan.org.uk/icn-schools-summit

It was my great pleasure to attend the InterClimate network (ICN) National Summit, on the 27 June. And it is great that the RCCP have been able to contribute towards the work of ICN, and helped to support the event.

The day itself was fantastic…it did help that it was held at Portcullis House, and was attended by MPs, which gave it a real feeling of importance. There were schools in attendance from across the country, sharing ideas and inspiration. There was a brilliant energy in the room.

Little Heath school represented Reading

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you both for giving us the opportunity to attend the conference today. It was very well organised and our students were really inspired by your guest speakers and the students from the other schools, as were we, as teachers. The students already have plenty of ¬†ideas to take back to Little Heath and are already planning to meet the head to kick start some campaigns.¬†

As a school we already look at food insecurity and actively support our local food bank, as well as looking at ways in which we can save water. We now have fresh ideas for plastics and energy efficiency in the school and look forward to making more changes and educating our students.”

CDP cities logo Reading added to Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) ‘A’ List

I am very happy to see that Reading has been added to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) 'A' List on Climate Action. Out of more than 1000 towns and cities worldwide, Reading is one of just 95 towns (10 in the UK) to receive top score on climate action. It has been great to be a part of that journey with the ReadingCAN (Climate Action Network). Knowing that the town has a strong strategy and adaptation plan is a really important part of that. Fingers-crossed that we can keep up the momentum for the future.

I am delighted to be on the panel for this event on Friday 26 November: As our climate changes, how do we protect British landscapes and encourage resilience amongst their local communities ? Join us to discover how communities have coped with environmental change in the past and the lessons we can all learn from this, as we deal with the effects of climate change happening right now. How are these landscapes altering and what adaptations do we need to make to ensure our management of them is sustainable?
