Campaigns

Our curriculum-linked campaigns are the most popular feature of the Pod. They get the whole school working together and inspired to take action. They can also be led by students, which is an essential criterion for an Eco-School Award.

We have lots of resources to make taking part easy, fun, impactful and rewarding. Join in and put your school on our campaign map.

What's Under Your Feet? 2017/18

Autumn dig runs between 09/10/17 and 31/10/17

Data entry is open from the 16th of October till the end of November

Help scientists at the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) understand the relationship between climate, the availability of invertebrates and how this impacts UK bird numbers and their migration patterns.

This engaging activity is curriculum linked and will help develop analytical and scientific skills. Plus, students will be contributing to the first large scale study of soil invertebrate abundance across the country.

Once you have signed up to take part - you’ll be able to view and download all of the campaign resources.

News flash! Schools feeding back data to the 2017/18 experiment could win a trip to meet TV wildlife presenter Chris Packham at the BTO. More details coming soon!
