The climate and ecological emergency is a crisis of trust and relevance for schools as much as it is of funding and fuel. It raises issues around mental health, equality and accountability, as well as the core function of education. In this article, such issues are outlined, followed by a crisis management guide for rapid implementation that covers guiding principles, as well as practical ideas, for action on decarbonising, well-being, resilience, curriculum and staff training.
