Inspiring and equipping young people to build a more sustainable world

We’ve only got one planet –and it’s beautiful. It’s also necessary for our survival. Through education for sustainable development, we can motivate and empower young people to come up with creative solutions to the environmental and sustainability challenges we face, and make positive change happen. We hope the content in our hub and resources shop will offer you food for thought, good ideas from other skilled practitioners, and maybe some content to use with your learners. We’ve also teamed up with Tes to produce a free CPD course for school leaders and teachers – you can find out more and enrol here. Together, we can help people and nature thrive.

The WWF Green Ambassadors are great team players. They all love being green and they all
bring different skills and interests to the team. Which member do you think you are most like? You could talk about this with other members of your Green Ambassador Team.

Green Ambassador Team Power Taster Resource- Teacher

Your pupils are growing up in a world that faces some of its biggest challenges ever. Our over-consumption of natural resources and unsustainable lifestyles are threating the very future of the planet that we share with millions of species. The huge variety of life on Earth, biodiversity, provides us with all we need from the air we breathe to the materials we use to build our homes. But if we upset the delicate balance of our planet then we risk losing all that we have.

it faces, and develop their own ideas and opinions on
environmental issues through creative and persuasive

WWF Oceans and Plastics KS2 Activity set

This resource contains a range of activities aimed at teachers of 7-11 year-olds.

It is intended that this resource will be used in cross-curricular work and all activities can be linked to the National Curricula of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Teachers will find that the material can be adapted for use with different ages and abilities.

The six activities engage pupils in active learning methods, encouraging them to work together to solve problems, to think creatively, and to see themselves as active participants in their communities and the wider world.

It is hoped that, as they build their knowledge and understanding, they will become aware of a ‘bigger picture’ and see how seemingly small actions, such as using a plastic drinking straw, can have far reaching consequences. With a growing awareness of the part that they can play in creating a better future for our oceans, pupils will take a step on the journey to becoming global citizens and sustainability champions of the future.

ACTIVITY 1:
WHY DO THE OCEANS MATTER?

ACTIVITY 2:

ACTIVITY 3:
