Rob Potter of Manchester City Council outside a city centre building.

With Rob Potter from Manchester City Council, Jo Pettifer from Let’s Go Zero, and Michelle Parkes from Earth Cubs.

In this episode, to mark the incredible day of schools action that took place in Manchester on Friday 14th June, we chat to three guests all focused in some way on connecting education settings and young people with climate action. We hear from Manchester City Council Project Manager Rob Potter about the work of the Educational Climate Change team in schools across the city; we learn about the incredible work that climate charity Ashden is doing through its Let’s Go Zero programme, which is now active in around 3,000 schools across the UK; and chat to Michelle Parkes about Earth Cubs – the award-winning sustainability education organisation teaching young children about climate, nature and the environment at school. 

Listen now to hear these inspirational stories about climate action for the next generation.
