Funding available for secondary schools

News, Schools – Wednesday, June 22nd, 2022

The Mayor of London and key partners (including Let’s Go Zero 2030 and Bloomberg, supported by the London Schools Climate Summit) will shortly be announcing this year’s Climate Kick-Start, to take place in autumn 2022.

This year’s programme is designed to empower young people to help tackle the climate and ecological emergencies, and air pollution, through practical, positive action, and by encouraging students into green careers.

This opportunity is open to all secondary schools and alternative education providers in Greater London, whether they are already taking environmental action or not. There will be prizes of £10,000 available and free careers events for all state-funded schools, plus free careers resources for all London secondary schools. The Greater London Authority (GLA) are also supported by a number of high profile advocates and organisations who will be able to champion the schools taking part. Please note that primary schools are currently not able to participate in the programme.

Full details of the programme and funding will be announced in July 2022, but interested schools are asked to express their interest via the link below to give schools more time to consider their involvement in the Climate Kick-Start. The form takes approximately 8 minutes to complete.
