7 Steps Schools Can Take to Address Climate Change

7 Steps Schools Can Take to Address Climate Change

climate change

Here is how schools can help tackle climate change.

There are many ways climate change can be dealt with, by schools. Here are 7 steps they can take immediately.

1) Reduce School Trips to Avoid Vehicular Carbon Emission

By reducing school trips, sharing rides to reduce carbon footprint, or encouraging walking and biking when possible. Create awareness among children to use bikes and bicycles to decrease vehicular pollution. This could be an enjoyable exercise for them and help in their health too.

2) Plantations & Greenhouse gases,

Encourage school children to plant more trees, encourage teachers to use renewable sources of energy like solar power, and avoid using equipment that creates higher carbon emissions. Let them plant fruit-bearing plants or vegetables. Educate them on how to grow mini home gardens too.

3) Teach Water Conservation

Schools can teach children about water conservation measures like collecting rainwater for home use, avoiding wastage of water at schools, and encouraging students to participate in environmental clean-up drives to keep the environment cleaner. This will create an environment where children are sensitive towards nature and the world they live in.

4) Use Recyclable Items

At your school, use recyclable materials as much as possible. Recycling has many environmental benefits, so it’s important to promote recycling with your students and show them why it’s so important for the environment. Demo Bags® are the best and most recyclable junk removal and woven contractor bags in the industry. You can easily do construction waste removal with these bags.

5) Save Energy at Schools

You can also teach them how to save energy at schools, wherever possible by using motion sensor lights or timer devices. You can introduce a recycling campaign at your school to make students aware of saving the environment and to reduce the wastage of paper.

6) Be More Environmentally conscious

Be more environmentally conscious as a school – you could do what is called a ‘carbon audit’, evaluating exactly how much carbon dioxide your school releases into the atmosphere. Once identified, any organization can identify and reduce its carbon emissions by creating a ‘carbon footprint reduction plan’.

7) Educate the Teachers!

Educate all of your teachers on environmental issues and how they can help to be more environmentally friendly. For example, they could learn new energy-conserving methods, use energy-efficient bulbs and make sure they shut down electrical equipment at the end of each day.
