Appetite for action

Submitted by on Wednesday, 7 April 2010 Loading Add to favourites  No Comment

appetite for actionAppetite for Action, in conjunction with Sky and Global Action Plan, are running a campaign to help schools make small changes that make a big difference.

All primary schools are encouraged to take part and we join in as a home school.

Appetite for Action is  free to join and helps schools tackle a range of sustainability issues through the topic of food in a series of online steps.

Greener grub

The Greener Grub challenge focuses on investigating food – where it comes from, reducing food waste and increasing awareness of local, seasonal and organic food.

Reduce rubbish

The Reduce Rubbish challenge encourages the school to reduce, reuse, recycle and compost in order to reduce landfill waste.

Get growing

The Get Growing challenge helps to set up growing areas in the school to enable children to grow some of their own food.

Free to join

The Appetite for Action website offers schools access to free resources, from lesson plans and fact sheets through to activity ideas and films, helping pupils to reduce food waste, grow their own fruit and vegetables, understand composting and reduce waste to landfill.

Competition prizes

Schools taking part can enter to win £3000 for their school and the overall winner will be visited by Sky Real Lives where Action team members will be the stars of a short film that will be shown in summer 2010. Although we can’t enter to win competitions as a home school we will still be joining in because many of these activities are ones which come naturally to us!

If your children are in school in the UK, why not encourage them to sign up and take part?
