Community Windpower attend fantastic Eco-Day at Carluke Primary School
On Tuesday 19th May members of staff from Community Windpower visited Carluke Primary School in South Lanarkshire to provide educational presentations and workshops to the children on a variety of topics including renewable energy, climate change and electricity. The presentations included activities to get the children involved and interested in these environmental topics.
In conjunction with CWL’s nearby Hill Rig Community Wind Farm scheme, which is currently in planning, this visit was arranged as part of Carluke Primary’s Eco Day and was very successful. The children greatly enjoyed participating in the presentations including donning hard hats and high-vis jackets to build a model wind turbine, as well asking good questions to CWL staff on renewable energy.
CWL’s energy workshops complemented the other activities on offer as part of the school’s Eco Day where pupils also learnt about recycling, electric cars and sustainability.
CWL endeavour to develop close working relationships with local communities and offer the wind farm as a local resource which people will see as a local asset. This is part of an ongoing commitment to the communities in the vicinity of the wind farms which CWL own and operate.
Educational presentations are also available for after school clubs, youth groups, local adult groups and any other community groups as desired by group leaders and members. Topics for the presentations can be on any subject related to the environment and are not limited to wind energy, but can include all types of renewable energy sources, energy efficiency, climate change, recycling, the environment, sustainability and Eco-Schools initiatives.
