As thousands of people around the world joined forces to raise awareness of the climate crisis in a week of climate action, which started with the international school strike on September 20 and culminated last week in the global climate strike on September 27, we’d like to share with you what we are doing here at Tti to take action.
As we are located in the centre of London all of our students and staff either use public transport, cycle or walk to school. This is a good start!
We are aiming to reduce, reuse and recycle the waste that we produce with our main focus being on reusing as this has the least environmental impact. By using mugs, spoons and glasses that we can simply wash and reuse in our coffee bar we are reducing the amount of waste produced. We actively encourage students to refill their water bottles in the coffee bar too!
We have removed the waste bins from all of our classrooms. We now have three recycling points around the school building (coffee bar, study lounge and roof terrace) where clearly marked bins allow and encourage students and staff to think about what they are throwing away and then to easily separate it or clean it before disposing of it.
These are just some of the ways we take green and CSR initiatives seriously. We also recycle all paper, conserve energy wherever possible and we don’t use single-use plastic or straws, all in an effort to do our best for staff, students, the community and our environment.
We are working towards creating a Green Policy and will include this in our Vision for 2020. There is so much more to be done and we are open to suggestions as to how we can improve so please do share your ideas with us.
