A community of educators empowering students to take climate action

Essex Schools Young Eco Protectors
Essex Schools Young Protectors logo

The Essex Schools Young Eco Protectors met for the first time in the Autumn Term 2022. Students from member primary and secondary schools, as well as those attending independently, meet every half term on Microsoft Teams.  We plan a ‘Green Week’ for schools across Essex to participate in conjunction with Essex County Council.  Schools share best practise and organise meetings and events together. There is also training for teachers throughout the year. Representatives from the Council and local environmental organisations often attend to discuss local initiatives with students. 


Calling Essex students and staff: get in touch if you’d like your school to join!
Note: students should ask a teacher to get in touch on their behalf or use a school email address copying in a teacher
