  1. Actions for carbon capture. Schools will plant trees as part of carbon capture and a means of education.
  2. Reducing carbon emissions. Recycle and reuse protocols will be implemented to reduce waste and impact.
  3. Support network for students and teachers. To share information and support each other to make this change.
