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. Be The Change encourages students to recognise that they have a leading role to play in tackling the litter crisis, while inspiring and empowering them to create and deliver new solutions to protect the places they love.
‘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. The programme has been developed in line with the Transition Project ethos.
Be The Change is not just a school talk, It is an award scheme too!
We challenge every school we visit to create an ‘Anti-Litter Action Plan’ to implement in their school or local community.
Watch our latest online Be The Change awards ceremony here.
After our visit we would like to invite you to enter the Be The Change Birmingham awards. The awards will give your students the opportunity to showcase their ‘Anti-Litter Action Plans’ and potentially win the £250 grant to implement their idea in your school / community. To enter, your school would simply have to send us a small digital pitch.
Anti – Litter Action Success
Introducing RA Butler Junior School, winners of the 2016 Be The Change Essex Awards – proudly showcasing their brand new ‘House Bins’.
Year 5 teacher Liz Cobbold said “The bins have been a huge success and the children are very competitive to fill theirs up for their house team. As you can see we could buy lots of sets of ‘House bins’ and no excuses to leave any litter around our school!”
