Register Your School for WWF’s Earth Hour 2011

Tuesday 14th December 2010

With the Cancun climate talks offering new hope in the fight against climate change, there has never been a better time to educate your pupils about their impact on the planet. A visit to the Working with Schools section of the WWF website opens up a world of ways to encourage pupils to think about the future of our planet. From signing up to the Sky Rainforest Rescue Schools Challenge – part of WWF’s partnership with Sky to help save one billion trees in the Amazon; to downloading free "Learn posters or registering for Earth Hour, you will find something for all key stages.

The WWF website is full of free teaching ideas for schools, including lesson plans and assemblies, all aimed at encouraging your school to be a One Planet School. A One Planet School is a place committed to reducing its impact on the planet here and now; a place which prepares young people to act as drivers for sustainability in the future; a place with a vision of how people and nature can live in harmony, on a thriving, green planet.

WWF’s Earth Hour takes place on the 26th March 2011. They have fantastic new support packs for primary and secondary schools, register on their website and they will send you the support packs in January 2011.

For primary schools there is also the opportunity to register for a free "virtual visit" resource pack which contains a film, assembly outlines, activities, resource sheets and lots more.

Visit the WWF's website for more information.
