What is an Eco-Lead?

Over 70% of all Waltham Forest nurseries, schools and colleges have designated Eco-Leads. They can be teachers or non-teaching staff who are enthusiastic about the role schools can play in creating a flourishing future and are able to be the point of contact for climate change and related learning at their school.

We know one voice is not enough to sustainably drive enthusiasm and build expertise in climate change education so we strongly recommend that schools have two to four nominated Eco-Leads who can collaborate.
