Southwick pupils show their green credential
Drivers of tomorrow came up close and personal with the future of motoring.

EDF took one of its 35 new fully electric Mini E cars along to Glebe Primary School in Southwick last week.

Pupils at the school have been working on a sustainability project with the energy giant, through its Pod programme, for greener schools. Pauline Marsh, deputy head teacher at Glebe, said: We were really pleased to be visited by EDF Energy and for them to show the children how the electric vehicles work, as it supports our initiatives of teaching the children about sustainability and saving energy.

Being able to talk and see different ways of how to be more environmentally friendly is a great way for the children to learn and be able to spread the message.

Denis Partridge, EDF Energys MINI E ambassador, took the concept car to the school, and talked to pupils.

As one of our 14,000 Pod schools, pupils will already be working on a range of sustainable activities. By bringing the MINI E to the school, we hope to offer them a memorable experience and show how different types of travel have an impact on your carbon footprint.

EDF Energy hoped, he added, the attention generated by the fleet would help raise awareness of electric vehicles and their sustainable credentials, and that during the London 2012 Games, 30 of the companys electric cars will become part of the BMW Group London 2012 official vehicle fleet.
