The Youth Charter Carbonwise Eco Schools Project, supported by Defra, RFU, Encams and Land Securities Trillium came to a conclusion at the BBC’s Salford Bus Tour event and presentation held at the Imperial War Museum on Tuesday 23rd September 2008.
Following the various ‘Carbonwise’ days held at schools across the North West, after school activities were held at the Salford schools which included soccer, rugby, basketball, music and art. Each of the pupils who attended the ‘artwise’ sessions brought their ideas together to bring awareness of our carbon footprint, climate change and conserving energy to make a poster.
The Carbonwise poster will also feature in an exciting national campaign with the support of Encams, the environmental agency which will provide ongoing potential for the Carbonwise experience to develop and grow with future funding and support. Exciting plans are also underway to develop the Carbonwise experience as part of the BBC Outreach Programme and School’s Out media Bus Tour.
