Natalie Bayliss from ActForEaling, Ealing’s new climate organisation, will be sharing with governors / leaders what schools can do to make Ealing a more sustainable place to live, work and learn.

This session will explore:

  • Use of practical resources

  • What other schools have achieved and how they benefited from their green transition.


Ealing Council declared a climate emergency in April 2019, and in January 2021, following consultations with local organisations and residents, the council published its Climate and Ecological Emergency Strategy. Ealing Council aims to become net carbon neutral as a borough and an organisation by 2030. Schools are highlighted as a vital public sector partner on the journey to achieving this goal.

For more information about climate change see:


  • Get ready for COP-26 - Around Ealing COP-26 is short for the UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties – the 26th of its kind. COPs have been held by the United Nations over the last three decades and with the UK currently serving as president, COP-26 is being held in Glasgow over twelve days from 31 October to 12 November. With the need to urgently address the climate crisis, the conference has gone from a fringe event to a global priority and almost every country on earth will attend



  • Young people will be empowered to take action on the environment as part of new measures designed to put climate change at the heart of education. Announcing a range of measures in a speech at COP26 on 5/11/21, Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi will set out his vision for all children to be taught about the importance of conserving and protecting our planet.
