William Booth Primary School's year 6 are finding out what it means to be a smart city and giving their ideas for how to make Nottingham, greener more sustainable and an even better place to live.
Pupils in year 6 at William Booth Primary School will be taking part in a REMOURBAN smart city engagement event. Nottingham City Council will lead two sessions with the class to let them know about the REMOURBAN low carbon energy projects that are happening in their local area and introducing them to the term ‘smart city’. The sessions will be interactive and the children will be asked to consider what the cities of tomorrow will look like. After an introduction to the themes of climate change and smart and sustainable cities with videos and interactive materials, the children will be involved in games and group work to enhance their learning. At the end of the session the children will use what they have learnt to make posters to show how they think Nottingham could be a more sustainable city and what future Nottingham will look like. The event is organised in the framework of the joint citizen engagement activities organised by REMOURBAN cities of Valladolid, Nottingham, Tepebasi, Seraing and Miskolc.
