Working with schools

Inspiring a new generation of sustainability champions

Our work with schools inspires and supports young people to build their knowledge and understanding, develop their skills, and explore their values so they're motivated and equipped to enjoy and care for our beautiful planet.


Wishes for our World

Wishes for our World is a fabulous new curriculum-linked teaching resource based on a unique, beautiful and moving letter from a grandfather to his grandchild, written by award-winning author Michael Morpurgo.

Plant2Plate Campaign

The Plant2Plate campaign highlights why food is a key environmental issue. It considers what can be done to produce and consume food in a sustainable way that is not harmful to our shared planet. In partnership with Alpro we have created a range of resources and competitions to support your pupils through our Plant2Plate campaign

Join us in WWF's Earth Hour 2016

At 8.30pm on Saturday 19 March, hundreds of millions of people from across the world will switch off their lights to show they care about the future of our brilliant planet. Last year, nearly 5,000 schools across across the UK took part in the weeks and days leading up to the hour, and this year we hope it will be bigger and better. This year we're asking schools to focus on natural light and have some creative activities to suit all ages.
