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.
