Emma Gannon reflected on the project, "Ethos College were delighted to receive funding from the Royal Society of Chemistry to enable them to raise awareness of how individuals in our local area can make a difference to climate change. As part of our GCSE course, we study a topic on the atmosphere, how the actions of humans are altering the composition of the atmosphere and what the potential impact of this is. Students reflections were that they could not make a difference as leaders were the ones responsible for implementing change. We talked about how if everyone made small differences, this could add up to a big impact. We then decided that we wanted to support people in our community to make these small changes; however, the pandemic limited our ability to move around the area so we decided that a leaflet and video, giving details of not only how they can make changes, but how they will individually benefit through lower bills and better health, would be the best method to get our message out. We completed the project with our partners, Engaging Education, who produced both the leaflet and video, so many thanks to them for their support and guidance."
"Our students were really proud of their work and I feel that we have started to influence a new generation of young people who are more aware of the impact that individual actions can have on atmospheric change."
