Everyone is welcome

You can take part as a whole school, or do the activities as a class, eco-club, or individual student. Kitchen teams, caretakers and other staff can also help their school get involved. And we’d love homeschoolers to join us too. 

Even if you don’t attend or work at a school, please let your family, neighbours or wider community know about this great opportunity. We’ve plenty of brilliant, free and fun resources to help them join in.

How to take part

Your daily activity can be anything you like but to make things easier, we’ve made a Climate Action Calendar with fun and easy challenges to try out. They range from holding a uniform swap shop, planting a butterfly bush, serving up a meat-free Monday and taking part in our Great Big Climate Quiz.

If there’s a challenge you like the look of but can’t do that day, you can always take part later in a way that suits you. Consider the calendar a pick and mix pack of fun climate actions.
