When it comes to saving our planet, one of the most inspiring cohorts of people to meet is young people. Not only is their generation one of the most aware of the impacts of climate change, but they also have the idealism to envision a greener future. One of the best places to cultivate this in school, where a love of nature can be nurtured and acted upon.  

A thriving example of harnessing this passion for the planet and applying it is St Munchin’s College. The secondary school has grounds of mature trees and is powered by solar panels. The school prioritises sustainability and currently has a green flag for transport, recycling and is working towards receiving one for biodiversity.
