Schools & Colleges
Become a force for change
For a taste of what we do, check out this video of our work with Croydon College
Here at People & Planet we work with colleges and schools up and down the country to tackle today’s most pressing global issues.
Energy Secretary Ed Davey has written to Michael Gove, urging him to reinstate climate change in the Geography curriculum.
Welcome to People & Planet’s School & College Network
We want to help school and college students to challenge world poverty, defend human rights and protect the environment.
At People & Planet, we believe in encouraging and empowering young people to become active global citizens. We’ll support them to make a real difference on issues such as climate change and global poverty.
Our work with schools and colleges was shortlisted for the 2011 EAUC’s Green Gown Award
We were shortlisted for the 2010 Guardian Charity Awards.
We created and rolled out the concept of awarding schools Fairtrade status. Today there are over 100 Fairtrade secondary schools.
We have converted over 65 colleges to using green electricity.
Each year, with our support, students learn valuable skills, run successful campaigns and hold fantastic events like Fairtrade Fashion Shows.
So what are you waiting for?
