We help young people run practical solutions in their schools, finding creative solutions for environmental problems.
Global Action Plan has a long and successful history of delivering United Nation Environment Programme (UNEP)-endorsed practical environmental education programmes.
Helping children understand sustainability
Young people face an increasingly uncertain future with economic and environmental challenges not faced by any previous generation. Environmental education is crucial in allowing young people to make connections between their actions and the world around them.
The role of corporates and charities
Our corporate partners are also helping us to ensure we build the relevant skills and qualifications into our projects so that participating children flourish in a more sustainable future.
We place an emphasis on practical activities that deliver tangible environmental benefits, such as our partership with Sourthern Water. We create curriculum-linked materials that help schools create high-quality learning opportunities for their students, as with the Sky Rainforest Rescue Schools Challenge. All our programmes are highly flexible, allowing schools to decide how far they want to go on a journey of change.
Our corporate partnerships allow us to keep the programmes free for participating schools.
It also means students get acces to large company resources, as when we were able to use the Sky Skills Studio to make a video for the Sky Rainforest Rescue Schools Challenge using the Sky Skills Studio, or when our corporate partner Camelot where able to offer a Summer Step graduate a job in their company.
