ECO team meets Age UK Cornwall & The Isles of Scilly

Published on 18 November 2019 02:25 PM

We provided a warm welcome to the Threemilestone Primary School Eco-team last week. Pupils & their teachers were invited into our Head Office, in Truro, to advise us on some of the ways we can minimise and reduce our carbon footprint.

The Eco-team were transported using our fully accessible Electric Vehicles. All of the pupils were extremely excited to be travelling in a vehicle that has zero-emissions, making their journey a greener, cleaner and safer trip. "Wow, they are so quiet" 

On arrival, the Eco-team met and spoke to our Transport Director, Gardening Lead & Chief Executive, to discuss ways we will be improving our carbon footprint and minimising our environmental impact in the future. Following this, the Eco-team toured the entire building to meet our staff & volunteers and identify some improvements we can all make.

Over the next couple of weeks, pupils from Threemilestone will be busy producing a report on how we can reduce our carbon footprint, this report will be shared with our Board of Trustees and help shape actions for our environmental policy.

 

Tracey Roose, Chief Executive, said "it was a pleasure to welcome Threemilestone pupils and their teachers to Age UK Cornwall offices.  The Eco-team did a tremendous job and we all had a fantastic day discussing the ways we can reduce Age UK Cornwall's carbon footprint. Our focus has always been on bringing communities together in a purposeful and mutually beneficial way, promoting a greater understanding and respect between generations. Working with Threemilestone Primary School and their Eco-Team provided a 'filter-free' look at some of our practices and will enrich future processes to improve health & wellbeing across our Charity."
