Metanoia, an environmental consultancy that specialises in sustainability for schools, has just released their findings from their School Sustainability Assessment taken by 129 schools in more than 40 countries. Here’s a glimpse at some of the findings from the report:
- More than 50% of schools who responded say their school leadership considers sustainability to be an important issue; but
- more than 60% of schools say they don’t model sustainability well in their day to day operations; and
- only 30% of schools use renewable energy.
There’s many more interesting insights in the report, which you can find here. In subsequent instalments, Metanoia will present findings from the survey about each the five dimensions of a sustainable school – campus, curriculum, culture, community, and communication.
Metanoia provide a Free School Sustainability Assessment which takes around 5-10 minutes to complete and will give you a good understanding of where your school is at on its journey, as well as offer some recommendations about how you might improve. Once having completed the assessment, they’ll send you through an automated, confidential report like the example below via email within minutes.
