Schools should be treated in a similar way to our workplaces when it comes to making them more environmentally friendly.  They also present an excellent opportunity to showcase good practice to future generation.  Many projects can be implemented that will not only benefit the environment but also reduce costs. Some simple ideas you might like to trial in your school include:

Introduce school/class projects that require an audit of energy.  Students can conduct an energy audit which takes into consideration how energy and resources are used. This would include identifying the number of lights, power points and appliances; 

Have the students develop a list of how energy use can be reduced;
