Low Carbon Skills

The choices we make as consumers play a large role in fighting climate change. It's important to know where our clothing and food are produced, and to make every effort to avoid unnecessary waste.  

These films and classroom resources have been made by pupils in Kirkcaldy High School, Kemnay Academy, and St Benedict's Primary School.  We hope they will help start a conversation in your classroom about sustainable consumption and encourage your pupils to make low carbon consumer and lifestyle choices.
