Global Action Plan
UK Sustainable Schools Network: ‘I want to be part of this too’
The UKSSN was established in Spring 2021 as an umbrella to bring together regional networks of students to connect and collaborate on issues they care about, fully supported by school staff.
The UKSSN was invited to take part in a review of the DfE’s draft Sustainability and Climate Change Strategy after UKSSN students attending COP26 in Glasgow spoke on a panel in the ministerial blue zone where the DfE’s plans were first unveiled. Since then students, teaching, and operations staff from across the networks have taken part in various working groups and panels to give feedback on the strategy, and some joined the launch event of the finalised strategy at the Natural History Museum on the 21st April 2022.
This report collates a rage of anonymous responses and in depth feedback on the Strategy from students and staff across all UKSSN regions.
