In an ongoing role, we are supporting Radnor House on its sustainability journey. Sally Cornelius has been appointed as Eco Schools Coordinator, helping the school improve its day-to-day operations and obtain Green Flag accreditation.
We are working with students in a range of areas to ensure the school consumes less water, uses less energy and produces less waste, creating financial savings which can then be spent on additional educational resources. Radnor House’s Eco Committee is already promoting greener travel and reviewing energy usage, and being part of this process encourages leadership and decision-making among the students, increasing confidence and enhancing motivation – all important life-skills to take into further education or employment.
Eco-Schools began in 1994 and is the largest educational programme on the planet (there are currently 70 countries delivering the Eco-Schools programme around the world). The programme focuses on empowering young people to lead environmental education and action via a simple, seven-step framework that gives students a platform to plan and implement environmental projects in their school, local community and beyond.
