Climate Leadership programme

The Waltham Forest Climate Leadership Programme is an exciting, future- thinking opportunity for KS4 students to learn about the causes and impacts of climate change and how they can step up and get involved.

The programme sessions will include climate literacy, creative workshops and communications training.

The summit was a very enjoyable experience and one I found really worthwhile. I and my fellow attendees will now be working hard to raise awareness amongst other students about climate change and how young people can do their bit.
