Be The Change

The campaign

There is a crisis in your community – and you can do something about it.

Litter is on the increase, on our streets, in our countryside and in our seas. What’s more, current solutions to solve the problem aren’t working!

We are all responsible for the litter problem, both as individuals and as a community. We can all make small changes to our lives that have a big impact on the wellbeing of our community and our environment.

About Be The Change

Our ‘Be The Change’ programme tours the UK and highlights the importance of clean, happy community spaces and encourages, informs, inspires and empowers young people and the communities they represent to find positive solutions to the current litter crisis.

‘Be The Change’ has been created in collaboration with education experts and designers to compliment KS2-4 curriculum requirements in a fresh and engaging way. We work with both primary and secondary schools, the programme has been developed in line with the Transition Project ethos. Be The Change meets curriculum attainment targets for Science, Geography, Citizenship and PSHE through its messaging surrounding ‘relationships in an ecosystem’ and ‘human and physical geography’.
