Our school is a powerful community. It might not always seem obvious, but the choices we all make at George Abbot and at home, about how we consume resources, determines how much we contribute to social, economic and environmental problems such as poverty, inequality, climate change and biodiversity loss, or how much we are part of the solution to these problems.
Here at George Abbot, we’ve taken the decision to be part of the solution by launching the Sustainable George Abbot Process. The school governors have approved and offered support for the newly launched student led initiative, we thank them for their leadership.
This process is aimed at drawing up a school wide Sustainability Plan by asking students & staff what their vision of a Sustainable George Abbot would look like in 2030. Our task is now to map out how we get from where we are now to achieving that vision.

Before half term, a group of students participated in a workshop on Doughnut economics, which is a visual framework aimed at highlighting the importance of development which meets all social needs without compromising planetary boundaries. Nine schools from the local area will be representing eleven countries in the mock COP working on identifying and agreeing strategies aimed at keeping global temperature rise below 1.5 degrees.
