School

Summary

Schools can play a key role in transitioning to zero-net emissions, by educating the next generation about climate change and empowering them to take action in their community. This is why Z-NET will work with schools, teachers and children to reduce emissions on site and grow climate change literacy.

Programs

We have a number of programs that can help schools improve climate change literacy, as well as programs to reduce school emissions.

01

Hepburn Z-NET curriculum

The Z-NET curriculum has been tailor made by CERES and Hepburn Wind, to teach students about renewables, climate science and sustainable practices, with hands on delivery options.

02

Hepburn Solar Bulk-Buy

Schools can go solar though the Hepburn Solar Bulk-Buy. Your school may also be eligible for the Bulk-Buy’s free ‘Community Bonus’ system.

03

Energy Assessments and Energy Savvy Upgrades

Although primarily for homes – schools may be able to receive an energy assessment or be put in contact with a provider who can. This could help your school to lower its running costs while improving student and staff comfort.
