The Midlands Schools Sustainability Network (MSSN) set up in November 2020 around the time of the Youth Climate Summit. Students meet fortnightly for an hour on Thursday evenings to share initiatives in their own schools, hear about local issues and plan joint projects. MSSN members have organised youth conferences and regularly take part in UK-wide research and events.  

MSSN will be working closely with two new networks launching in autumn 2021 in Greater Manchester and the Mersey Region. 

 

Calling Midlands 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

Mission statement & aims 

 

  • As part of our commitment to sustainability and environmental friendliness, we aim for all schools involved in our network to sign up for Let's Go Zero and secure the Eco-Schools Green Flag award.

  • All schools joining the network make a commitment to taking steps to ensure they can become as green as possible (such as covering environmental issues in the curriculum and forming environmental committees within the school).

  • Another aim is to focus on education given our insider status regarding schools and our connections with teachers.

  • We especially hope to exert pressure on our schools on the issue of education on topics such as climate change and sustainability for younger students, who we feel should be introduced to and given a comprehensive education on such a critical topic early on.

  • While all schools within the LSEN are secondary schools, we may also use our ties to primary schools to try and influence education for students at that age too.
