Waltham Forest Climate Summit Programme

The Waltham Forest Climate Summit has a theme per day including a keynote video and daily action which almost everyone can take part in. Follow the link for each day to access the videos, supporting resources and more climate education recommendations. 

You can run the Waltham Forest Climate Summit during any suitable week.

Will you and your students take the Climate Challenge and do all five actions?

You can find an All You Need to Know pack here which will help you carry out the actions and form a School Climate Charter. Please note the pack was produced for the Climate Summit which took place 8 - 12 November, 2021. Registration and submitted pledges is no longer required but please do still share your actions with us here at Suntrap.
