About Katie

The Netherlands

The main event in February was when us 6 Climate Change Champions travelled to the Netherlands for a 4-day expedition, we travelled by train to reduce our carbon footprint. The trip was very varied, and included a treasure hunt, a boat trip to a wind farm and attending a reception at the Hague. The trip was very interesting and we learnt lots, I found that:

  • Everyone in the Netherlands owns at least 1 bicycle;
  • In the Netherlands 13% of energy sources are renewable;
  • In the Netherlands recycling bins are more easily available compared to in the UK.
