Pupils at solar schools

Last year, the carbon cutting organisation 10:10 dreamed up a way for schools to install solar panels by raising money from their communities. Seven months on, they’ve shown it’s possible with five solar rigs installed, over £75,000 raised, communities brought together and other carbon-cutting efforts boosted in the process. Now it’s time to go bigger. 10:10 is rolling the project out nationwide.

There’s only space for 100 schools, so visit to find our more and put your school forward.

The Solar Schools project is supported by the Calouste Gulbenakian Foundation as part of its work to identify and promote some effective strategies to help green the economy
