Avon Schools Eco Network
The Avon Schools Eco Network (ASEN) has been meeting since late 2020 to to discuss sustainability and get to know each other. Their intent is to make a difference in the region with more impact than they could as an individual school. Students meet fortnightly for an hour on weekday evenings, on zoom. The group of Year 10 to 13 students from ten schools are mentored by local freelance educators and staff from Bristol and Bath schools and universities. There are close links with the Somerset Climate Justice Network, another member of the UK Schools Sustainability Network.
Calling students and staff from Bristol, Bath and surrounding areas: get in touch if you’d like your school to join!
Students should ask a teacher to join too and, using their school email address, write to us and copy in the teacher.
'A movement for a sustainable future, powered by the young people of Avon for Avon. Diversity is a Golden Thread throughout our network.'
We meet with like-minded students with whom you can share ideas and knowledge, and work together on exciting projects that will hopefully bring change. We hope you will feel inspired to join Avon Schools Eco-Network, as we would love to have as many people with lots of different ideas, perspectives, and goals in the network as possible.
Networks build a secure base of facts, opinions, and specialists within the groups, and then use influential contacts, voices of the youth, and different strategies to tackle the important issues we face as a society. Being part of this network is a great way to meet like-minded students with whom you can share ideas and knowledge, as well as working together on projects that will hopefully bring change.
