Welcome!

We are the Cambridge Schools Eco Council

Who We Are

Hi! We are the Cambridge Schools Eco Council, a group of young people who care about the environment and the climate crisis. We work with other organisations for main events but you've probably heard about us through the Youth Strike 4 Climate protests that we organise.

We were set up by a group of primary and secondary school students in February 2019, just after the first international Youth Strike 4 Climate. Now we have people from many schools and places over Cambridge attending, but originally we had only members from 8 schools.
