Worrall Road Eco Team Workshop at Sparks Bristol
Our Worral Road Eco team attended the final Avon Schools Eco-Network www.ASEN.UK Primary school workshop of the year, on Thursday 6th July. The workshop took place at the newly opened SPARKSBRISTOL; a department store with a difference in Broadmead, in the centre of Bristol.
The former Marks and Spencer building has recently been reopened as community space with sustainability at its heart. During the afternoon, the children had a tour of the building and visited the Departments of Nature, Imagination, Fashion, Gifts and took part in a Re-fuse workshop in the Department of Re-use and Resources where they learnt about electronic waste and how to repair and upcycle electronic items.
**CALLING ALL PARENTS**
Are you worried about climate change and the impact it will have on our children but not really sure how you can help? This is one really quick and simple action that you can take to use your voice as a parent…
A decision is imminent by the UK government about opening the biggest new oil field off Scotland – Rosebank. This is despite global consensus from scientists that drilling for new oil and gas is incompatible with tackling climate change and ensuring that our kids have a safe and liveable planet in the future.
The Rosebank oil field will also NOT help UK families with rising energy bills or energy security. The UK and Norwegian government need to know that this not what parents, who are worried about their children’s future, want.
Parents for Future is building a movement of parents around the world who want to protect this planet for children everywhere. Have your voice heard by signing this letter today. Please also share with friends and family – it’s so important for our children’s future. Every signature counts! If you haven’t got time for climate action, signing and sharing a petition really does make a difference.
