DfE Strategy

Education is vital in helping tackle climate change and creating a better, greener world for future generations.

Our Classroom Climate will educate and inspire pupils & schools on the importance of sustainability
in their local communities and on the international stage.

OCC helps schools meet the requirements of the DfE sustainability & climate change strategy:

1. Excellence in education and skills for a changing world: preparing all young people for a world
impacted by climate change through learning and practical experience.

2. Net zero: reducing direct and indirect emissions from education and care buildings, driving innovation
to meet legislative targets, and providing opportunities for children and young people to engage practically
in the transition to net zero.

3. Resilient to climate change: adapting our education and care buildings and system to prepare for the effects
of climate change.

4. A better environment for future generations: enhancing biodiversity, improving air quality and increasing access to,
and connection with, nature in and around education and care settings.
