Our City Our World
Brighton & Hove City Council declared a climate emergency and has pledged to be Carbon Neutral by 2030.
Large scale surveys in the city show that 90% of young people,
97% of parent/carers and 98% of teachers in Brighton & Hove
think it’s very important or vitally important to learn about
climate change in school. The majority of young people are worried
or very worried about climate change and less than half of young
people are excited by the future.
Our City Our World (managed through the council’s environmental education provision) addresses the above by working to ensure that climate change and sustainability is integrated into all curriculum areas, all children have regular access to nature, all schools takes action to lower their emissions and empower young people to be changemakers and have hope for the future.
As we are experiencing more severe weather events each year,
have a significant mental health crisis in schools and a national
shortage of green skills, we need to be strengthening our
sustainability approach in schools, not removing it.
