We are well aware the time is ‘zero o’clock’ for the planet. If we don’t do what we can now, it will be too late. We’re also aware that one of the largest emitters of Carbon Dioxide and equivalent (CO2e) in Australia is our school system, with 25% of our population involved in one way or another. It’s also where we prepare our children for their future — so, for Dave Aaskov, one of Radian’s founders, co-creating a positive program to help schools take action on climate change was not just rational, but vital.
If all the 9,500 schools in Australia and 50% of their communities reach carbon neutral, we will make significant steps towards our national target.
