Bideford Students Awarded Prizes for Net Zero Visions

Earlier this spring, students at Bideford college took part in a project to develop Net Zero Visions for their local area as part of their enrichment week syllabus. The students developed fifty Visions in total, before fifteen were shortlisted for judging.

The shortlisted projects were judged by Dr Emma Whittaker, who is the project organiser of the Net Zero Visions for Devon Climate Emergency, as well as staff from Torridge District Council. 

Last month, an award ceremony took place to announce the winners, whose visions most successfully articulated how net-zero can be achieved in Bideford. Around 260 pupils, teachers, sponsors and organisers gathered for the event. 

Following the judging, Dr Emma Whittaker said: “We are looking forward to seeing how the students take the project to the next level by producing artworks that communicate these issues, and they will be displayed on the Devon Climate Emergency website”. We are eager to see what the students come up with, and will share their artistic visions as soon as they are complete.
