Agritech team at Pershore College

As part of Green Skills Week, we're joined by our Agritech team based at Pershore College, to share knowledge about projects and opportunities available at the college, mixing education, technology and skills to address climate change and to develop a more sustainable method of growing crops. 

Greenest Town Possible

Climate change is becoming an increasing problem around the world with the earth getting warmer, ice caps melting and sea levels rising. 

The past decade has been the warmest on record, and governments around the world agree that urgent action is needed.

The recent COP26 summit, which focuses on tackling climate change, reiterated the importance of needing to make change to hit climate targets, in particular the ways of how people live and the use of more green technologies. 

As part of the need for change, we are challenging KS3 pupils, Year 7 – 9, to create the “Greenest Town Possible”. 
For more information on, entry criteria, the challenge and key dates then please use the attached. 

This competition will run through until February half term, with the last submissions being the week commencing 14 February 2022.
