Engineering and Construction Crafts students take part in Race to Net Zero day

Thursday 11 May 2023

In early May, Richmond upon Thames College Engineering and Construction Crafts students took part in a ‘Race to Net Zero’ day event, hosted in the college’s auditorium.

The ‘Race to Net Zero’ event was led by teachers Anna O’Flaherty and Raj Johal and was inspired by the Race to Net Zero campaign by the United Nations Climate Change convention.

Raj Johal, assistant head of Engineering & Construction Crafts at Richmond upon Thames College (RuTC) thought the event would be great for students to learn more about the effects of climate change whilst also engaging with different employers who are embracing climate saving measures into their business practices.

Raj explains, “We decided to host this event because tackling climate change is a vital issue which we all should be more conscious about, but it is something young people are especially concerned about.

“We wanted to give our students the chance to meet people who are working on the environmental issues and providing them with a better understanding of the roles that exist and the different pathways into those positions.

“We are aiming to help broaden students understanding of the Green Carers and empower them to make good career choices in the race to achieve Net Zero.”

The event provided plenty of opportunities for students to interact with organisations that cover a broad spectrum of sustainability within different sectors. These included, Rolls Royce, FORCE (Friends of the River Crane) and ARUP who kindly gave their time to educate our students.
