The official website for the Al Gore film 'An Inconvenient Truth' has a section which allows you to calculate your own personal carbon emissions and then suggests ways in which you can reduce them. Click on the image to visit the site.
Why not ask your family to commit to saving 20% of their energy? The Energy Saving Trust website has some great ideas about how you can do this and includes a carbon counter - click on the logo below to visit their 'Click to Commit' campaign website. You will be asked to dedicate your carbon savings to a place that is special to you. To do this, you will need to upload a photo of your chosen location. If you haven't got a photo to upload, you could have a look at those that have been put onto the Geograph website. Click the link below to visit this site.
The Geograph project aims to host a photo for each 100 metre grid square in the UK. It's an amazing resource of images. What could you add to it? To see my Geograph photos, click here.
Cambridge City Council has launched its own Climate Change Charter. The Leys School has signed up. Do you think we should too? If so, contact one of the EcoSchools team and let them know how you feel about this issue and why!
We are hoping to be able to get the City Council's Climate Change exhibition tour to visit us at Chesterton. Please contact Dr Hutchinson if you would be prepared to help out with organising this event.
