WWF-UK Earth Hour 2015

‘For the love of…’ – Go bunting crazy for Earth Hour!

Thank you for joining us in our record breaking Earth Hour, the biggest celebration of our beautiful planet yet! Please do send your buntying in to the Schools and Youth team here at WWF. We have already started receiving your amazing 'For the Love of...' bunting to show world leaders that young people care about climate change.

You can see some highlights across the world.


Close up on climate

Climate change could affect so many of the things we care about, from our families to our food to our futures, so we need to inspire people to act. The Climate Coalition is asking young people around the UK to get creative and make a short film. We want young people to show everyone why fighting climate change matters.

You don’t need to be a film-making expert (yet!) as we’ve got loads of tips on our website. We’ll be featuring the most inspiring and creative films in our public campaign in 2015, and at an event later in the year.

Congratulations to our competition winners!


Autumn term competition winning posters I Love Amazon Schools

 

Seven talented pupils have won Sky Rainforest Rescue’s I Love Amazon Schools autumn term poster competition.  For the competition, pupils were asked to reflect on what forests meant to them and then create a poster and campaign slogan that urged and encouraged others to take action to protect forests around the world. 


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 Ambassadors 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!
