Inspiring a new generation of sustainability champions
For over 30 years, we’ve been working with schools and educators to inspire young people to make positive choices for a more sustainable future.
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.
Green Ambassador Awards
We are delighted to announce that our annual Green Ambassador Awards are back for 2018. This year we are searching for the UK’s top green teams and teachers within primary schools. We would like to shine the light on green teams and teachers who are championing environmental and sustainability issues within their School. We will be looking to award winners from each UK country.
