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

The next dig is in June. Once you've completed yours, please  enter the data you've collected on the Pod as soon as possible. 

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.

We have all the resources you need to make taking part easy. Why not watch this short film on how to take part or download the quick guide

Once you've signed up you'll be able to download all campaign resources.

News flash! Schools feeding back data to the 2017/18 experiment will be entered into a prize draw to win a trip to meet TV wildlife presenter Chris Packham at the BTO. Find out more.
