Pupils get smart about sustainability

Ryan Smith 1st Aug, 2022

PUPILS from Balsall Common Primary School have finished in first place in an annual competition that encourages sustainability.

The pupils won the Creativity Challenge at the Mission: Sustainability programme with an online awards ceremony at the end of the summer school term, where they could watch on from their classrooms.

The programme celebrates the creativity of students who imagined the ‘smart cities of the future.’

In their category, the seven Balsall Common students were tasked to produce a piece of work encouraging people to use e-bikes.

Mission: Sustainability is run by Enzen and sees West Midlands pupils aged between six and 14 tackle three different challenges themed around e-mobility, smart street lighting and eco-friendly buildings.

Each school’s work was judged by Enzen and the first second and third places were decided, along with some highly commended entries.

The other two categories were Essay Writing and Design.

Enzen UK and Europe CEO Sanjay Neogi, who appeared at the awards ceremony, said: “We see it as our responsibility to give back to society, involving and listening to young people who will be the thinkers and doers of tomorrow.

“The amount of creativity we have seen coming from the younger generation has been brilliant and I’d like to thank all the pupils and teachers involved for making it happen.”
