Millions of incredible young people around the world have led the charge for climate justice over the last twelve months.

This Friday 20 September they’re asking adults to join them in any way they can for the #GlobalClimateStrike, protesting inaction in the face of the unfolding climate emergency. We’ll be there, and if you want to join in too you can find your nearest strike by clicking this button and typing your postcode. See you there!

A wedding favour from Ellie Goulding

It's not often that we find Hello! among the publications name-checking us, but earlier this month we heard that Ellie Goulding invited her wedding guests to donate to Global Action Plan. The singer married Caspar Jopling at York Minster at the end of August. You can check out Hello!'s wedding photos here if you fancy a peek, and if you'd like to make a donation to us, click the button below.

Preparing to Transform Our World

This Friday, we're launching Transform Our World, a new online resource hub for teachers.

 

The hub will help teachers build on the energy and excitement around climate action, empowering young people to tackle the root causes of the climate breakdown and biodiversity loss.

 

Transform Our World resources are sourced from a range of partner organisations expert in inspiring young people to protect the natural world through schools programmes. We'd love for you to support the launch this Friday and let your teacher contacts know about the hub. They can access resources that give students opportunities to lead change - in the form of impactful projects that benefit their friends, family and local area. Download our Comms Pack and help us spread the word!

Global Action Plan has created Transform Our World as part of our pledge to the #iwill campaign, a movement of over 1,000 organisations from across the UK that aims to make participation in social action - such as volunteering, campaigning, supporting peers or fundraising - the norm for young people aged 10-20.

 

The #iwill Fund supports Transform Our World.
