Geography — Solutions for the Planet
Solutions for the Planet is an organisation that is building partnerships between businesses and schools to create a more sustainable future through a competitive nationwide programme. On the 1st November, 60 Year 9 students took part in the Big Ideas day. They came up with some inventive solutions for the problems they identified, for example, the recycling and separation of materials in tyres to make environmentally friendly tyres and recycle existing oil.
Following the Big Ideas day, students will be developing their thinking with business mentors from businesses such as the likes of SGN and Tarmac.
This is an excellent opportunity for students to work within a team, have an impact on our planet, work and make contacts with external businesses and, potentially, present their ideas at the Palace of Westminster.
