    Our current programme focuses on empowering students to find innovative solutions to the litter problem.

    Our Be The Change education programme has been designed to inform, inspire and empower young people and their communities to find ways they can help solve 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.

    Be The Change Awards:
    We challenge and work alongside participating schools to create Anti-Litter Action Plans to implement in in their school’s or communities. Award ceremonies are held to celebrate the best Action Plans, and small cash prizes are available to help put the plans into action.
