Strathallan Prep School’s Eco-Council were invited to present their ideas, solutions and environmental actions at COP28 Youth Call to Action conference.


This was their message to the delegates and other schools around the world:



Following their presentation, the organisers of the Youth Call to Action have requested to show ‘Our Ocean, Our Future’ in the main COP28 Blue Zone event for world leaders and delegates to see and hear.

Miss Morris, who has helped the Prep School Eco-Council grow at the school said,

The Ocean is essential to our survival, yet we treat it with neglect. Our pupils are seriously working hard to recognise and remedy this. They have driven so much of this year’s efforts. Coming up with their top ten tips to make a positive impact and they were thrilled to speak at COP this year.

Earlier this month, Strathallan School were awarded the Eco-Schools Green Flag, recognising the environmental efforts of both Senior and Prep pupils over the last 12 months. These efforts include planting over 400 trees, reducing waste in the dining hall and rewilding over 53 acres of campus.

Strathallan Prep Pupils also launched a sustainability initiative called ‘Bee the Change’ in April 2023, when they presented their ideas to a United Nations Water Conference.
