This term, a group of our pupils, accompanied by Mrs Thompson our head of Geography, attended the launch of the Oh Yes! Net Zero campaign.
The campaign, an initiative spearheaded by Reckitt, aims to create an environment of collaboration, initially between local firms and organisations across Hull and the Humber region, in an effort to strive towards the net zero carbon emissions target for the UK.
Also in attendance at the launch was Alok Sharma, a Cabinet Minister and also the president for COP26 that was recently held in Glasgow. Speaking on the initiative, Mr Sharma spoke of the campaign’s aim.
"This is a unique campaign, illustrating the action we need to see as the UK becomes carbon neutral by 2050. It brings private and public sectors together, and asks every individual, household and organisation to help and make a difference across the Hull and Humberside areas.”
Whilst attending the event, Malet Lambert pupils to part in a range of activities, including question panels with the visiting speakers, including Mr Sharma, a recycling workshop with Reckitt, and the chance to learn about the different sustainability efforts in around Hull.
Mrs Thompson considered the visit, and the event as a whole, a great opportunity for the Malet Lambert pupils attending.
“The event was a resounding success! Pupils were able to get fully immersed in sustainability and what it means for Hull. They left Reckitt full of ideas of how to start Malet Lambert on its net zero journey and will be implementing their plans in Geography club over the next few weeks.”
As the initiative continues, Malet Lambert is committed to continue to learn all we can on how we can improve our sustainability efforts. Thank you to Mrs Thompson and our pupils for representing our school brilliantly at the launch of the Oh! Net Zero campaign.
