Northumberland Schools Launch New Climate Change Resource Pack

Northumberland schools have launched a new resource pack to help teach students about climate change and sustainability. The pack, called "Climate Change and Sustainability in Northumberland," was developed by the Northumberland County Council's climate change team in collaboration with teachers and students from across the county.

The resource pack covers a wide range of topics related to climate change and sustainability, including energy, nature, water, society and policy, transport, food, and waste. It also includes information specific to Northumberland, such as local school trips and days out, and tips on how to become a carbon neutral school.

The resource pack is designed to help teachers and students learn about climate change and sustainability in a way that is relevant to their local area. It can be used to teach lessons, plan school trips, and develop school policies on climate change.

The launch of the resource pack was welcomed by Glen Sanderson, Council Leader and Cabinet Member for climate change. He said: "This is a fantastic resource that will help schools in Northumberland teach their students about climate change and sustainability. It is important that we educate our young people about this important issue, and this resource pack provides them with the tools they need to do so."

Dr Meryl Batchelder, Subject Leader for Science at Corbridge Middle School, said: "This resource pack is an invaluable tool for schools in Northumberland. It is packed with information and resources that can be used to help students learn about climate change and sustainability. I would encourage all schools in the county to download it."

The launch of the resource pack and the funding for schools are part of Northumberland County Council's commitment to tackling climate change. The Council is also working to reduce its own emissions and to promote sustainable practices across the county.
