An Update from our Sustainability Committee on World Environment Day
The Sustainability Committee has continued to meet during the @Home programme. Some members of the committee also met "virtually" this week with a group of pupils from St Paul's Girls' School, Westminster and Dulwich College to discuss the prospects for a green economic recovery after Covid-19.
The Charterhouse@Home Sustainability Competition to complete a sustainable project has been won by Andrea Ambrosio, with second prize going to Virginia Cavicchi. They win prizes of a work experience package at Hartree Partners and a signed copy of Mark Lynas' new book. Charles Reay and Viggo Jensen were also highly commended. A special mention must also be made of Mr Woolley's amazing wildlife garden.The range of entries from pupils and staff was hugely impressive and it is obvious that many have made really good use of their time in lockdown.
Planning for the Charterhouse Climate Conference 2020 is on track. This is a series of afternoon webinars and Q&A delivered by experts covering a very wide range of topics during the week of 15 June. Ticket sales have been brisk, already exceeding five hundred, and anyone interested should sign up asap. Other schools, private and state, around the world will also be taking part. Note that a separate ticket is needed for each day. See the flyer below for registration details and further information:
