Preparing for World Environment day

To prepare we talked about what sustainability is and what CO2 is. We also went on a sustainability website and did a quiz on how much energy the world would need in the next few years. We also went onto a carbon footprint website and completed a basic quiz about our life styles. Even in our Envirogroup there were big differences in the sizes of the individual carbon footprints. We talked about actions we could take to reduce ours on an individual basis.

We also wrote a pledge on the World Environment Day website. Every school in the country had this opportunity on June 5 we could see what other schools around the country are doing for the environment.
We had two pledges. The first was that we would try and get more people in our school to use public transport. The second was to ask everyone to be responsible for their own recycling and compost.

Here is the website for you to have a look at what schools are doing around the country.
