St Columb Minor School, Cornwall, UK
Fun and games saving energy at school

To make something work you usually have to make it enjoyable as well as worthwhile. The Eco Team and staff at this primary school are taking a practical but fun-packed approach to driving energy use down by making eco pledges in class and at home, generating energy with wind and solar, and giving their building a green overhaul. Not many lights left on in the corridors we suspect.
