We’ll support you all the way.

Incorporating the themes of climate protection and sustainability into schools is the best way to build awareness and achieve long term results. Our annual education roadmap guides you through all the key topics, taking pressure off teachers to integrate Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) into lessons in accordance with Curriculum 21. Successful projects will be publicised, giving the schools the opportunity to involve their local community and send a pro-climate message to the wider world.

Our network and the involvement of local and national project partners brings specialist expertise into the classroom.
