School Climate Charter

The Camden School Climate Charter is a local framework to empower schools to play their part in making Camden a zero-carbon borough by 2030. Signatories declare a Climate and Ecological Emergency and commit to actions to contribute to addressing it in line with the Camden Climate Action Plan 2020-2025.

Charter commitments fall into two areas:

  1. As educators – schools commit to teaching young people to be environmentally literate.
  2. As organisations – schools commit to ensuring any decisions around managing premises, purchasing goods and managing resources take into account their impact on the environment.

The Charter was developed based on the work with schools since 2018 as well as feedback from teachers and school heads via the peer support network.

The 10 Charter Commitments cover: 

  1.  Sustainability and the curriculum
  2. Single-use plastics
  3. Waste
  4. Food
  5. Transport
  6. Energy
  7. Procurement and circular
  8. Re-wilding/biodiversity
  9. Make climate action fun and
  10. Climate justice
