Surrey Environmental Action Schools

Welcome to our site! We are a newly formed alliance of six wonderful Surrey secondary schools who first met in January 2021 to allow students to discuss issues and ideas about sustainability and the climate and ecological crisis. We discuss topics that are relevant to our schools, local area and more widely. 

 

The members of the group are predominantly from Years 12 and 13 but we almost always have younger students contributing or acting as observers. We meet once or twice every half term, usually on a Thursday at about 6.30pm. Schools take it in turns to plan, chair and take the minutes of the meetings and our members also attend the UKSSN meetings. 

 

We plan to undertake shared initiatives, share resources, provide a platform for discussion and learning about the environment. 


Calling Surrey 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
