Project 90 Clubs aim to cut carbon by 10% each year through implementing at least one project each year. We have lots of project ideas and we help you develop a measurable project that is practical and works for you. This could range from basic water saving and recycling programmes to a refit programme to use less energy in your buildings, or installing renewable energy equipment. All of these of course are great for the environment for many reasons – and all cut carbon dioxide emissions.
Cost? Zero, zip, nothing. If you commit to cut carbon and dare to change, and form a Club we are there to help and support you – at no cost. Of course some of the projects that you may embark on will need money, and we assist Clubs with ideas on how to raise this if you cannot afford this yourself.
Projects can be implemented at any stage. For most of our schools we aim to have a project identified for implementation in March of each year. This allows for a six month project duration and thereafter a formal assessment as to how much carbon has been cut. Of course many projects will hopefully continue beyond that. In October and November of each year we award prizes to the winning Clubs.
The best performing clubs in each province will receive a prize towards furthering their carbon cutting aims – in the past things like recycling bins, solar water heaters, retrofit equipment etc have been provided by us. And of course we tell everybody about it – in our newsletter, on our website and in the press.
