Get your school involved in the Great Big Green Week

The Great Big Green Week takes place between 8th and 16th June 2024, and there are lots of ways you can get your school involved!

Could you plan a whole-school assembly, or perhaps you could organise an event? Or if you want to dedicate a lesson to climate change and nature loss – look no further! We’ve created lesson packs for primary and secondary schools – scroll down to find out more.

School resources

We’ve produced a range of resources including a lesson plan, activity pack and guidance for teachers. Sign up to get these sent to your inbox.

The classroom activities for primary and secondary schools focus on how we can all make swaps to tackle climate change and restore nature – and the impact possible if we do this on a bigger scale.

Zero Carbon Schools

We’re delighted to be joining forces with Let’s Go Zero for the launch of the Climate Action Countdown. Running from 7th June to 5th July, schools and pupils can take part in a month of fun and easy climate challenges that start them on the journey to becoming zero carbon by 2030.

The event brings together the big climate and nature charities, campaigns and events, including the Great Big Green Week, to shout with one voice over climate – showing our small actions in schools make a BIG difference.

From trash taskforces to lights-off lockdowns to pop-up plant-based picnics, quirky quizzes and thousands of pounds of eco prizes, it will be a fun-packed month of Earth-positive events!

Who says schools can’t be sustainable? And everyone from caretakers to kitchen teams, pupils, parents, teachers and heads can sign up to take part!
