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.


Which school will you challenge to a #PenguinDanceBattle?

This Christmas, our campaign is to highlight the plight of our polar regions by focusing on two iconic species - polar bears and penguins. Part of this campaign is our fun #PenguinDanceBattle. To get involved, all you need to do is put on your favourite track, video your school dancing like penguins, then nominate another school and post on You Tube orTwitter, using #PenguinDanceBattle @WWF_UK.

Well done to Howard Junior School for starting us off with their fantastic film. Fantastic effort everyone!


Green Ambassadors

If you want to help your pupils develop the skills and confidence they need to engage - even lead - environmental projects in your school, then Green Ambassador is for you. Fronted by a team of friendly characters, each representing a topical environmental issue, the scheme provides everything you need to set up or re-invigorate your school's 'green' team. You'll soon be seeing the difference in motivated pupils, reduced environmental impact - and even savings on your energy or water bills!


School visits at the Living Planet Centre

Ever wanted to visit WWF? Well now you can, at our inspiring Living Planet Centre - one of the greenest buildings in the UK. We have a fantastic range of engaging, curriculum-linked workshops on offer for primary schools, providing a stimulating way for children to explore, learn and discover more about the natural world and sustainability issues.


Resource hub

From rainforests to rivers, climate change to citizenship, we've got something to help with your teaching and learning needs in our resource hub. There are curriculum linked activity packs to use in the classroom, materials to help you engage with our global conservation campaigns, and tools and approaches for engaging with sustainability across the whole school,
