A group of Eton students and teachers have successfully completed training as Climate Fresk facilitators this term – in a school-wide commitment to eco-consciousness.

Over the last two weeks, four students and three Masters (teachers) took part in rigorous workshops that equipped them with the knowledge needed to address the urgent issue of climate change among classmates and colleagues.

The representatives included John B., Freddie W., Abraham Y., and F Block’s Philip K. – along with Ms Hicks, Ms Herbommez, and Mr Anderson.

Climate Fresk workshops are known for their collaborative approach and emphasis on collective action. They seek to teach the science behind the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) report, while empowering participants of all ages to make a tangible impact.

Director of Environmental Education Ms Herbommez said: “We are really proud to be part of this neutral, objective, and empowering way to make a difference.”



With over 45,000 members spanning 130 countries, the movement has gained considerable traction. Eton joins other institutions like the University of Strathclyde, Imperial College London, and the ESCP Business School, who have all recently organised similar workshops.

Eton has been actively promoting environmentalism. The School recently celebrated Environment Week, which saw boys take part in a Model COP, a Bioblitz, and a wildlife photography competition.

With their training now complete, these newly-certified facilitators will support Eton’s contribution towards a more sustainable future.
