Project Zero is an initiative taken to assist in making Secondary Schools carbon neutral. The implementation of this project can raise climate change Awareness and Advocacy and foster the next generation of leaders for climate action. In an attempt to make the participating schools carbon neutral, their carbon footprint was assessed via Energy, Water, Waste and Vehicle emission audits. CZITT designed and initiated solutions for carbon reduction and carbon offsets. The carbon footprint is reassessed after one year. Some schools that partnered with CZITT for this project are St Augustine Girls’ High School and Presentation College San Fernando.
CZITT collaborated with Presentation College with the vision of making their school carbon neutral. Students and staff both took part in various activities to ensure the success of the project.
Below are pictures of Presentation College students at the Launch of Project Zero along with HE Justice Carmona and the planning session of Project Zero.

CZITT took a step forward by expanding Project Zero to SAGHS. SAGHS was enthusiastic in participating in activities that can make their school carbon neutral, for example, planting trees.
