Building a hub of plastic education teaching resources


Clearly one of the fundamental elements of the challenge is delivering education to both young people and adults.  To support all challenge participants, the Plastic Education team have generated a central directory of freely available resources to be used ‘as is’ or as a platform from which to inspire your own team’s planning.  Anyone can contribute new lesson plans to the hub and become a part of the Plastic Education community. 

You can join our team by sending us your lesson plans.   

Our goal is to achieve an exciting and dynamic spread of learning resources to cover all abilities in all year groups across the primary and secondary education sector. These new resources will focus primarily on understanding the issues surrounding this project, readiness for the Challenge, environmental concerns and more specific education messaging in plastics such as ‘reduce, reuse and recycle’.

...and don't forget the Case Studies!

Make waterways your playground


We think participation is important… if you use it, you respect it… engage to help sustain change. We hope students and schools will take the next step to get afloat and make water ways their playground.

Inspiring the next generation of ocean guardians

We want to increase on water participation and sporting activity. We intend to link schools with local sailing centres and help to get schools afloat, introducing new sailors to our sport with a better understanding of the impact of plastic in our waterways and oceans.
