As part of Northampton Saints Green Game initiative, dedicated to promoting sustainability, Northampton Saints Foundation has joined forces with Northampton Saints Community team to deliver free assemblies to local schools in Northamptonshire.
The upcoming Gallagher Premiership clash against Newcastle Falcons, on Saturday January 27, aims to empower and inspire supporters to actively contribute to climate and environmental causes.
Northampton Saints, who signed up to the UN’s Sports for Climate Action framework 18 months ago, have scrutinised their own carbon footprint and implemented measures to reduce their impact, with an aim to move to net zero by 2040.
The Foundation’s commitment extends to educating the younger generation through free assemblies in local schools to be delivered from January 2024.
Liam Welch, the Foundation’s Education Lead said “Sustainability and taking sustainable actions is a world-wide need and we are proud to support the clubs Green game initiative, where we hope to encourage these actions through our continued work within schools and alternative provisions”.
The assemblies aim to focus on three key areas:
- Sustainability at Northampton Saints/Northampton Saints Foundation: Providing insights into how Northampton Saints and the Foundation actively advocate for sustainability.
- Sustainability around you: Encouraging students to explore and share sustainable practices within the school, at home, and in the community.
- Becoming a Sustainability Champion: Introducing a unique incentive – two complimentary tickets per school for those who exhibit outstanding commitment to sustainability.
With only 10 available slots available, schools are encouraged to secure their spot quickly to avoid missing out on this opportunity by emailing [email protected].
