#iwill teams up with Eden Project Communities to launch free resources for primary schools

The resources provide fun, creative and simple ways for teachers to introduce pupils to the natural world and their role in preserving it.

Young people aren’t just the leaders of tomorrow. They have the energy, skills and ideas to change society and the environment for the better today. 

We’ve teamed up with Eden Project Communities to help make it easier for you and your pupils to get involved in environmental youth social action.

We have created a series of adaptable resources to support schools and organisations to take part in environmental social action; with links to the curriculum and the 2019 Ofsted Framework, they encourage and support young people to get the most out of helping nature to thrive.

Environmental social action takes many forms, and there are countless opportunities to get involved throughout the academic year. Whether this is your first attempt or you’re a seasoned activist with seriously green credentials, these resources will give you some small steps and taster activities for getting involved.

Head to Eden Project Communities to find out more and to download resources and materials.

What are the resources?

  • Presentations for introducing the topic to your class
  • ‘A little list for looking after nature’ – activity and guide
  • Fortune teller
  • Human bingo
  • Displaying your achievements

Why get involved?

It’s fun, puts the environment on everyone’s agenda, and helps children experience being active citizens – great for them and for meeting the 2019 Ofsted Framework criteria. Read more.

Take a look at the video below to see Year Three at Beckfoot Allerton Primary in Bradford using the #iwill4nature resources. Thank you to Beckfoot Allerton and The Linking Network for all their support in launching the resources.

The materials were developed by #iwill and Eden Project Communities, with expert advice from teachers and young #iwill Ambassadors who are passionate about nature. The project was made possible by funding from Pears Foundation.
