Earlier this month, Rachel joined children at the Sacred Hearts Primary School in Leeds to take part in the innovative Climate Cops Academy day. Pupils of different ages and year groups braved the stage in front of their peers to talk about how they and their families save energy to help make west Leeds greener than ever.
Among the children and staff were also energy firm representatives, keen to learn about how the younger generation want to protect their environment. Delighted at the interest of pupils, Rachel put herself forward for a rigorous questioning by pupils wanting to know how she saves energy at home. From TV and light usage to the use of regular public transport, Rachel explained why she thinks this is such an important issue facing us all today.
Over the last six years, the programme has graduated over 60,000 school children through the Climate Cops Academy.
