Pupils from Primary Schools across North Kesteven have been taking part in the first Live Earth competition organised by Global Sleaford (a community group of friends raising local awareness of the global impacts of Climate Change). Supported by NKDC, Christian Aid and Sleaford Renewable Energy Plant.
Year 5 pupils have written letters to their legal representatives, Leader of the Council, Councillor Richard Wright, and local MP, Dr Caroline Johnson, raising their concerns about the effects of climate change on people in under developed countries and the expected impacts on them in the future and asking them to do all they can to ensure that the safe and prosperous future of all.
NKDC has provided prizes of book tokens and fun books on climate change. Sleaford Renewable Energy Plant has loaned the schools educational resource boxes to support them to teach the children about the issues and some of the solutions.
Each school submitted 20 fantastic letters for shortlisting. The pupils will read their letters raising their concerns about climate change, suggesting solutions and asking for action to be taken, to Councillor Richard Wright at a prize giving event in the NKDC Council Chamber on Tuesday 17 April.
