Three times SEE’s very own James Veness has been to Antarctica with the polar explorer, Robert Swan, and his 2041 programme to learn about climate change and what we can do to protect the last great wilderness on Earth, the last two times as an educator to the team of adventurers.
Why does SEE exist?
Schools in the UK spent £500m on energy in 2010 and expect to be £1bn by 2021. The last 20 years has seen an intense period of change in our society:
- Growing cost and security risks to our energy
- Climate change
- Economic pressures and fluctuations
Change can be scary, but it can be a good time to make a real difference. So this is an ideal time to change attitudes to energy and sustainability.
What we do
This business is local and professional. Our impact is threefold
- Our expertise provides bespoke information to each school to help them understand how they use their energy and how through behaviour change, improved control and appropriate technology will lead to its more efficient use.
- Provide bespoke workshops with schools to enable students to explore energy and interrelated sustainability concepts. Without this understanding the changes above will not be fully realised.
- Introduce others with further expertise required by the school: universities, businesses, NGOs.
These measures will not only reduce energy consumption significantly, but will also have the following benefits:
- Spend savings more productively, e.g. on education
- Reduce the school’s carbon footprint
- Encourage student participation and empowerment
- Create a better learning environment
- Raising student attainment
