"Eco Schools" event and "An Inconvenient Truth"

Eco Schools event this morning out at the the conference centre of the Royal Bank of Scotland, Gogarburn. Really, really impressive morning with several schools and teachers presenting what they are up to with the Eco Schools scheme ... the standard was just great.

Three primary schools awarded their "Green Flag" level award, capping off a thoroughly enjoyable event.

And later this evening went to a Youth Services Advisory Committee viewing of "An Inconvenient Truth", the Al Gore film documentary. It is pretty powerful and seemed very appropriate to be watching it the very day the Stern Report hit the headlines.

... all in all a very 'green' tinge to today's diary!

Enjoyed your entry today - glad you went to see the Al Gore film - although pretty stark in its message, I also thought it showed that the next generation could make a big difference and it seems to me that Edinburgh schools are trying to start just that process. Well done to all, Alan.
