Eco-Schools- teach them carbon free

Up to 200 environmentally friendly schools are to be built as part of the drive to reduce carbon emissions and tackle climate change, the government has announced.

Education secretary Alan Johnson claimed the eco-schools would help save five million tonnes of carbon dioxide.

The scheme, which comes as part of a £110m investment package to be delivered over three years, will also see all secondary schools given a copy of Al Gore’s film ‘An inconvenient truth’.

“As people and businesses try to reduce their carbon emissions, it is only right that the government plays its part,” Johnson said.
