Welcome to Green Action ELT

Future UK ELT

Imagining better, greener ELT

Post Covid, what does the future look like for our classrooms, businesses and communities? Instead of ‘returning to normal’, let’s find better ways of working and living, coming together to face an even bigger challenge – the climate and ecological crisis. Let’s create a better, greener future for UK ELT and beyond.

Our goals

Green Action ELT – formerly ELT Footprint UK – is here to help create a better, greener UK ELT industry with sustainability at its heart. We want to put the environment on the agenda, discuss the difficult questions, build an inclusive movement and make change as easy as possible.

Together we can put environmental responsibility on the agenda and help change UK ELT for the better – connect with us and share your #GreenELT ideas, projects, hopes and challenges! Find us on social media or subscribe for email updates.
