Green Ambassadors

The Green Ambassadors scheme aims to encourage a new generation of sustainability champions.

Green teams are great for motivating and engaging pupils. They help build communication, team skills, and confidence - important qualities if you're keen to get some great environmental projects going in your school! The scheme provides everything you'll need to set up or re-invigorate your school's green team so your pupils can really take ownership of sustainability in your school. And that's not all: successful green teams can help reduce schools' carbon footprint and save money!
