The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan said "Heat in cities has intensified by the ‘Urban Heat Island’ effect, a result of the sun’s rays being absorbed by hard surfaces instead of trees, plants and grass. Increasing the number of trees in London will help tackle this, cooling the city, providing shade to Londoners as well as making London more resilient to flooding."
The Green Heathlanders share the Mayor's vision and have been taking bold action to build a greener and more sustainable community. The outstanding Green Heathlanders have been busy this year making improvements to the local environment. Whilst some pupils have braved the weather to clean up the local river, others have been planting hundreds of spring bulbs and hedgerows at school. Their efforts will improve biodiversity, beautify our local spaces and mitigate the effects of climate change. Look out for upcoming events and be part of the solution.
