Richmondshire students are being encouraged to join the district’s climate change movement by designing a logo for a new partnership set up last month.

The Richmondshire Climate Action Partnership is bringing together representatives from the district council, community organisations and businesses to create an action plan for a net-zero carbon district.

To coincide with Earth Day on Thursday (April 22) the pupils are being invited to develop branding for the new group which will be used on its communication materials.

“In the quest to address climate change and safeguard our biodiversity, the voice of our youth is being heard loud and clear,” said Partnership Deputy Chair, Mike Sparrow.

“Our children are becoming increasingly impatient and outspoken about the lack of progress that is being made to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve stewardship of the environment.   To acknowledge their aspirations we are inviting them to design our new logo.”

Over the next six months the Partnership will formulate a ‘net-zero carbon’ action plan for the whole district, working in conjunction with the council, business and local communities. In addition to helping with design of the Partnership logo, students are also being invited to contribute ideas for the action plan.

All school headteachers are being contacted this week about the logo – the winning design will be selected by councillors next month.   To find out more about the partnership check out: richmondshireclimateaction.org or email info@richmondshireclimateaction.org
