Empowering young people to make a difference!
WWF has partnered with TES to create a new course for teachers. ‘Education for Sustainable Development’- is an online programme for educators who want to put ESD at the heart of their school and inspire a new generation of sustainability champions. The course aims to:
- Develop a better understanding of ESD and why sustainability is an important part of teaching and learning
- Explore ways of developing a whole school approach to ESD
- Provide strategies, activities and ideas to develop ESD in your school
Read about how these schools have put sustainability at the heart of their educational journey and how its benefiting our future generation in many ways.
- St Colm's High School, Northern Ireland - connecting with nature for health and wellbeing
- Middleton CofE Primary School, East Yorkshire - learning outside the classroom
- Heald Place Primary, Manchester - benefitting the wider community
Whole school approach
Pathways is a guide for schools that want to develop a whole school approach to sustainability. It provides a set of flexible activities to help engage the school community in charting their own sustainability journey, from understanding what it means to planning and delivering environmental projects, and evaluating success.
All things Green Ambassadors
Our Green Ambassador scheme helps to put your pupils at the heart of sustainability in your school. Meeting the Green Ambassador characters helps pupils to explore all environmental themes and connect the issues within their own school. Pupils develop ideas on how they can create a greener and environmentally friendly school, they also learn and develop important life skills, working as a team, presenting ideas to their peers, time management and budgeting plus many more. They also have access to a range of free supporting resources from surveys to help get them started, Hints and tips and themed resources for example our Plant2Plate (food related) resources.
We have a couple of taster resources for you to download.
To access the Green Ambassador resources just register your school.
