We are thrilled to announce an exciting event that marks a significant step forward in climate education for primary schools in Swansea: the Swansea Schools & Climate Education event. This event is set to take place on March 15th, 2024, from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm at the iconic Liberty Stadium in Swansea, SA1 2FA.

In a groundbreaking collaboration, Swansea Building Society, Swansea Council, and Connex Education Wales have come together to introduce 'Our Classroom Climate' to all primary schools in the region. This teacher-facilitated program is designed not only to connect the dots on the science of climate change for students but also to incorporate cutting-edge space station science directly into the classroom, enhancing air quality and creating a healthier learning environment.
