Youth Cabinet campaign
The Youth Cabinet is an elected group representing the young people of East Sussex. Thousands of 11 to 18-year-olds voted for the Youth Cabinet to take action on climate change.
Part of our ongoing work is the energy audit survey for schools. This is a tool for students and decision makers in secondary schools to:
- move towards becoming carbon neutral
- save hundreds of pounds on their energy budget
