Mobilise Your Eco Warriors at school
We at The Learning Escape pride ourselves on our environmentally friendly methods and our use of sustainable materials and technologies in the construction of our eco-classrooms. Get your pupils involved in thinking about environmental issues and climate change by participating in these fun, educational initiatives taking place during the next month.
Next week is Go Green Week, organised by People and Planet, the largest student network in Britain campaigning to end world poverty, defend human rights and protect the environment. The organisation actively encourages and empowers young people to become responsible global citizens and to realise that they can make a real difference to their world. Go Green Week is their annual national week of action on climate change. Running from 10th to 16th February, it coincides with Valentine’s Day this year and the theme will be to “break up with the fossil fuel industry” on Fossil Free Friday 14th. For further information and ideas click on the following link to download your Go Green Week action guide.
Alternatively, Climate Week is scheduled to take place from 3rd to 9th March. This is Britain’s biggest climate change campaign to inspire a new wave of action to create a sustainable future. The deadline for entry, which is free, is Friday 21st February and this year’s challenge will then be announced on Monday 24th. Previous year’s challenges have included “design the ultimate eco-home” and “green your space”, but the ultimate aim is to engage students in a high energy, creative educational experience. The challenge will be designed to promote teamwork and to deliver results to a deadline whilst simultaneously enhancing environmental awareness. Your pupils can take part in either the 1 hour challenge or a full day version, which should take no more than 5 hours. Further information can be obtained from The Climate Week website.
So, mobilise your budding eco-warriors and get them thinking about the environment and how they can make a difference. They are the future architects of a sustainable world, give them the tools to make a change for the better.
