CAFOD Zero Heroes - September 2019

St. Alban's Catholic Primary School, Pelaw

The pupils of St Alban’s Catholic Primary School, Pelaw, became CAFOD Zero Heroes by supporting CAFOD's campaign to raise awareness of climate change and its consequences.

CAFOD are calling for the UK to reach net zero emissions by 2045 at the latest. This means only putting the same amount of emissions into the atmosphere as we take out.

The pupils discussed what actions can be taken to achieve this. They came to school dressed as a super heroes and learnt that by making small changes every day, such as reducing energy use, recycling more and cutting out car journeys where possible, they can make a difference.
