How to make ‘green’ truly mean something to young people? That was the challenge The Co-operative set us back in 2010. We developed Green Schools Revolution (GSR), a holistic learning programme with deep engagement at its heart that encourages young people and their families to embrace a sustainable lifestyle. As part of this initiative, we developed over 200 education resources, organised nationwide school trips and developed a hub packed full of sustainability themed resources, interactive games and information.
5,200 primary schools, 1,150 secondary schools and over 7,600 teachers have been empowered to kick off a green revolution in their school. But scale isn’t everything. Engagement is one of the truest measures of any programme’s success and we’re thrilled that GSR resources have been downloaded over 20,000 times by teachers from the TES website, with teachers and parents telling us that children who engage with the programme have developed a natural and ongoing interest in living a sustainable lifestyle.
