Reinvigorate your eco-team!
Green teams (or eco-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!
Being part of WWF's Green Ambassador 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!
Green Ambassador Awards 2017
WWF's popular Green Ambassador Awards will be launching on Monday 6th March, following on from the huge success in 2016. The Awards highlight the amazing environmental work within schools across the UK and shine the light on the dedicated and passionate teachers and green teams who bring their green ideas to life. Look out for the new categories in 2017.
Green Ambassadors is fantastic. It's engaged both the children and the staff to become more confident and to enjoy their work outdoors. We wouldn't have been able to do what we've done in the school without the support of this wonderful project. Thank you!

If you're considering growing food at school for the first time, then this calendar is for you.
