Sustainable schools celebration 2018

Our first Sustainable Schools Celebration evening, an opportunity to celebrate the dedication and commitment of staff, students, parents, and volunteers to improve our environment, health and wellbeing in schools in Leicester, took place on Tuesday 30 October 2018.

Further information

Nominees were selected by members of the environment, health and wellbeing group. The group is made up of nearly 50 professionals, who work within Leicester City Council, or organisations that provide environmental or health services to schools in partnership with the council. Many members of the group will be attending the evening.

We were very pleased to welcome Cllr Adam Clarke, Deputy City Mayor, responsible for environment, health and health integration and Jeanette Orrey MBE, co-founder of Food for Life, who gave our keynote speech for the evening.
