Best Environmental Strategy
We continue to encourage more entries to this category and are pleased to see an increase again this year. The entries have shown a good level of understanding of the issues and the winning schools have presented practical and effective solutions.
Dollar Academy – The Galley
The team chose FSC certificated wood free coated papers, appreciating the tactility that this offers for a printed magazine in preference to an online publication. This publication was strengthened by two thought provoking environmental articles.
Durham School – The Durham Eye
The school project included preparation of a spreadsheet designed to calculate the carbon emissions of their publication and the study of different environmental methods of production. The team also visited a local paper mill to review the effects of the paper cycle on the environment.
Thomas Bennett Community College – Booggle
The article ‘Eco Warrior’ shows a good environmental insight into waste management. They also tried to raise awareness by writing about ways in which wildlife can be injured or killed by discarded waste materials.
