The Durham Federation
ECO2 Smart Schools Support
In an annual meeting with The Durham Federation business manager, their OASES Energy Officer shares the schools annual energy report. They work together to discuss ways to make savings and reduce the school’s carbon emissions.
Earlier this year, the OASES Energy Officer visited one of the sites and ran a session with a group of pupils. The pupils examined real time energy data and carried out an energy audit of the site. They explored their findings and discussed what could be done to reduce the energy usage and carbon emissions in their school.
In February 2019, Durham County Council declared a climate emergency. In September 2019, Durham County Council (DCC) ran consultations to get the views of both children and adults on climate change and how we can tackle this in County Durham. A group of pupils from The Durham Federation visited County Hall on 20th September to take part in a climate change consultation led by Joanne Appleby (OASES) and Rich Hurst (DCC).
