Part of the programme
In Wales, Your Green Future events are being run as part of the Our Future’s People programme.
The programme aims to reduce school’s energy use and improve the sustainability of their operations whilst providing students with a valuable educational opportunity. Through the programme students develop a range of transferrable skills, increase their self-confidence and develop an awareness of environmental issues and the wide range of employment opportunities available within the ever expanding ‘green economy’.
This academic year we are delivering the programme in 5 schools in south Powys; Brecon High, Builth Wells High, Crickhowell High, Gwernyfed High and Ysgol Maesydderwen. Students in these schools have received technical training, carried out surveys of their school premises and reported their findings and recommendations to Senior Leadership Teams and school Governors. They are now developing and delivering awareness-raising campaigns to promote positive behaviour change among staff, students and the wider community.
During academic year 2018-19 the programme moves to the northern half of the county where it will be delivered in a further 5 schools.
