Climate Change Tool Kit

We have created a guide that contains all the information needed to promote active travel and combat climate change at your school. All of the resources centre around the three themes of this campaign: Walk to School; Take the School Bus; and Idle Free for the Kids. In this guide you will find resources such as a facilitator's guide, social media campaigns, school announcements and newsletters, and activities with curriculum connections.
