Our first Chichester Eco Summit is approaching fast!!
We are excited to be holding this inaugural Chichester Eco Summit event at Weald & Downland Open Air Museum. Over 100 pupils from 7 local schools will attend the Chichester Eco Summit event for a variety of environmental and sustainability themed workshops covering a range of themes including Energy; Water; Waste; Biodiversity; Global Citizenship; The Ocean and Food. A Key note speech is being given the West Sussex County Council Waste Prevention team.
