SERIOUS MONDAY: PROJECT GENIE INITIATED IN LONDON SCHOOLS

Children in London are taking part in a new carbon project which could lead to huge cuts in carbon emissions at schools across the country.

The project is based around a children’s book, The Genie in the Bottle, which tells a story of global warming and it aims to give every child in the UK aged between 7-11 a free copy.

Project Genie was launched at Lauriston School in Hackney and in just one day of its implementation, the school cut its carbon emissions by an incredible 50%.

The book suggests ways in which each child, school and family can reduce carbon emissions and their impact on the environment.

Eleven other Hackney primary schools have also signed up to test the project and have been given a new wireless device to measure how much energy is being used. With luck, Project Genie will soon be helping children across the country to save energy and reduce emissions.

There are already some free online resources for schools including a comic story, Molly and the Pirate.
