Update from NCB on environment and children’s third sector

Update from NCB:

We have a couple of important news items that are time specific, hence a separate email before our October climate connections e bulletin.

1.        Sustainable Schools – support available to you

In response to the Government’s cut to the Sustainable Schools Strategy, a consortium of organisations have written a letter setting out what support is available to schools who are well on the way or about to start the journey to becoming sustainable. Please circulate this letter as widely as possible through your networks to ensure it reaches as many schools, Local Authorities and NGOs as possible. Thank you.

2.        Youth debate on climate change

In the build-up to the United Nations climate conference in Mexico and to coincide with 10:10 campaign to cut carbon emissions by 10% in 2010, the UK Youth Parliament is hosting a three-week online climate change forum for young people in the UK aged 11 – 18. The aim is to provide young people with the chance to debate this very important issue with a panel of well-known figures from the world of climate change (see below).
