St Bernadette Catholic Primary School

Eco warriors

‘Climate change is a global problem …. Young People demand change.’ Pope Francis

 

In July 2019 we took part in Cafod’s Zero to Hero campaign. We learnt about how the world is changing because of climate change and the impact it is already having in some countries. The Governments of the world need to act fast.

We can also do something about climate change in our own lives. We can make small changes every day, such as reducing our energy use, recycling more and cutting out car journeys where possible.

As a result of our participation in this campaign we decided to empower our children to affect change through creating an eco-warriors group. The eco-warriors at St Bernadettes are leading the school in identifying what changes we can make as community to help put a stop to climate change.
