'Our school 2030'

'Our school 2030'

Over at another of our local primary schools, Fitzjohns, Stephen of Transition Belsize, was delighted to have the opportunity to display the fantastic model of the vision for an green Fitzjohns school in 2030, which the kids had created last term at his eco club. What amazed Stephen was the highly considered approach the kids took to the project, for example the kids felt that by 2030 we would need to grow alot more of our own food, but becase we live in a cold climate, there would need to be lots of greenhouses - so a big part of the site is filled with greenhouses. THe other main design challenge included how to make the energy generation centre attractive, as another big chunk of the site revolved around energy generation and saving!

The model will be on display in Swiss Cottage library this Autumn.

A sneak preview of it can be seen in the Ham and High this weekend.
