Classroom resources to support your Earth Hour event

Earth Hour inspires us to think about what we can do for our planet. Whether it’s making sustainable choices like using less plastic, cutting down on our food waste, or choosing to buy products that don’t harm the environment, every decision we take can make a difference. Young people today are vital to protecting our planet, both now and in the future.

Our resources packs are aimed at KS2 and KS3 (England) and P4-7 and S1-3 (Scotland) pupils, with all activities linked to UK curriculum and they can be adapted for use with different ages and abilities. You can use them to take a cross-curricular approach over several weeks in the lead up to Earth Hour or as standalone sessions. Each activity looks at one of our key themes, Fight for our wildlife, Fight against plastic pollution, Fight to fix our food system and Fright to tackle climate change and followed on with the Promise for the planet, what promises will your pupils make? 



Edinburgh Schools Poster Competition

To celebrate Earth Hour 2019 we’re launching a competition for Edinburgh school pupils to design an advert that will be displayed in and around the city!

We would like your pupils to design a poster showcasing their very own individual promise for the planet. The winning posters will be displayed on Edinburgh city centre bus shelters and digital screens on selected Lothian buses from 1st March up to Earth Hour 2019.  We’ll be looking for designs that will inspire the people of Edinburgh to make their own promise for the planet.
