Welcome to the Climate Action Toolkit on ChangeX.
Through offering support and resources the charity InterClimate Network (ICN) will support secondary school students, and their teachers, as you engage your school community on climate action. This includes:
- An online Climate Action Survey and bespoke insights report
- Student-led resources to create campaigns for climate action in your school
- £500 per school to support students implement their climate action plans.
Take a look at the 5 Steps in the 'How to Start' section for details on this toolkit.
Background to the project
Schools across the UK are planning and delivering a wide range of climate-friendly steps, such as reducing waste, making buildings more efficient, or encouraging greener travel. InterClimate Network’s (ICN) research report in 2021 showed that a majority of secondary students are already motivated to make a difference.
Success in this area means having the support of the whole school community. Students – and staff – have lots of different views, and there will be different activities and approaches that can help motivate them. This is where the Climate Action Toolkit comes in, giving as many students as possible their say on climate action in a school-wide online survey, and using behaviour change approaches to support climate action campaigns that go further - more targeted, more creative, more impact.
