Haringey Schools Carbon Challenge

Carbon-saving challenge and design competition for primary schools.

The Haringey Carbon Challenge is a competition for all primary schools in Haringey.

Carbon Challenge diary

Children will challenge themselves for a week to engage in carbon-saving activities and record them in a diary.

They are encouraged to engage with the adults in their lives throughout the week.

We have created an A4 template for the diary that you can download and provide the children with:

Carbon Challenge design competition

Children are tasked with compiling their successes into an A4 poster. We encourage group and class entries so that all the great ideas can be shared!
