Green Day

Green Day is an initiative that helps to make schools sustainable. It will inspire pupils and colleagues in your school to learn about climate change and how it relates to the buildings and spaces around them.

Over 1050 schools across the country took part in the Green Day initiative between 4 June and 2 July 2010. We’re currently planning an even bigger and better Green Day for summer 2011.

See our photo stories from Birley Community College, Sheffield, and Riverside Special School, East Riding of Yorkshire, to get an idea of the sort of activities that schools have done in the past as part of Green Day.

Green Day resources

Our Green Day teachers’ activity kit is packed full of subject linked activity ideas to help you engage pupils in Key Stages 1-3.

We share information to support you and your colleagues to make real changes to how your school estate operates, making it more sustainable.
