PROTECTING THE PLANET

How to use this website

Earthwise Action has been designed to support children and adults to learn about environmental sustainability solutions so that we can create a long term future for the planet.

 

From biodiversity and tree planting in towns and cities to support animals and pollinators to information on how you can reduce your water, waste and energy consumption, we run a whole range of community projects and educational resources to prepare the next generation for long term sustainability.  



For children

You are very wise to be interested in the future of your planet. Please feel free to use the powerpoints in the lesson plan section, they will give you a good understanding of ways you can help. There are also some great environmental links on the resources page and if you are taking part in the School Sustinainblity Programme you might want to have a look in the projects section to see what your next school trip will include.  

 

For teachers and school children

Please help yourselves to the many free sustainablity lesson plans available that meet the KS2 national curriculum objectives in English, Science, DT and Geography. Each one comes with a lesson plan, a powerpoint and classroom resources written by teachers to make sure they are relevant.
