The Environmental Sustainability Committee has been a work in progress at Newington since 2011. Beginning with a few senior students discussing environmental issues then, the Committee has since grown to include about 30 students who meet regularly to make Newington a more sustainable school.
Environmental awareness is not just an issue to be discussed in parliament, by NGOs or big corporations trying to spin their image; it’s something that should be at the centre of all communities including our own.
The blog is just a part of what we hope to achieve. It will be used to show media content from around the world, spark debate, bring you up to date with important events, and help build a more eco-friendly future at Newington.
