COP26 WWF Forest of promises

November 2021

In Biology to mark COP26 we have been participating in the WWF Forest of Promises activity (https://www.wwf.org.uk/get-involved/schools/forest-of-promisesby) by making our own tree of promises. Students from Year 7 to Upper Sixth have been making pledges on leaves that are then added to our tree. One side is a pledge that they will make themselves to help the environment (do meat free Monday, switch to reusable/refillable toiletries, use public transport instead of the car, for example) and the other side of the leaf is a promise that they would like the government to make (suggestions have included making it mandatory for new build houses to have solar panels, improving the Oxfordshire cycle lane network and banning single use plastic items).
