Healthy and Sustainable School Collective

The Collective is a group of local authority and across city teams. They are working to raise engagement, improve outcomes and support the schools, children and young people of our city in making healthier and more sustainable choices within their communities.

Our goal is to encourage and educate children and young people to live healthier and environmentally sustainable lifestyles.

To help champion a healthier and sustainable city, we are working together with schools to support young people in their community to develop their character. This will maximise their health and wellbeing so they can reach their full potential now and in the future.

To do this we will work together to:

  • Provide information about the health, sustainability and wellbeing needs of children and young people
  • Provide information about evidence-based school programmes to address these needs that will quality assure the projects undertaken by schools
  • Develop networks of support by joining up different organisations and quality assured support services that can work with schools
  • Address needs of children and young people to build their resilience, confidence and independence – and help them know how to keep physically and mentally healthy in a sustainable way
