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 Award winners 2016
Our Green Ambassador Awards are run annually and aim to shine a light on the very best examples of schools putting the environment at the heart of what they do.
This year the awards once again proved extremely popular, with over 70 schools entries, 132 pupil nominations and 202 teacher nominations. Whats more the standard of entries just gets better and better!
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!
