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.

Waste Week 2018

Runs between 05/03/18 and 09/03/18

The focus for our 2018 national waste saving campaign will be food waste and packaging, and there will be a range of NEW curriculum linked resources to support the activity.

Get your students involved in an exciting, informative and topical campaign to help raise awareness and hopefully reduce waste at your school.

PLUS – there’s a limited number of free resource packs containing stickers, posters and infographics for the first schools to sign up! Please note packs will start to be sent out early February 2018.
