Schools and the Running Out of Time Relay

This year schools are a major part of what we’re doing across the country. In some form or another the relay will visit 50 schools from Fort William to Hackney, recognising sustainability initiatives, connecting children into a nationwide movement, and inspiring more action.

Plastic Free Schools

What is Plastic Free Schools?

A system-shaking, changemaking, pupil-led education programme

It’s a programme to equip young activists with the tools to create positive, lasting environmental change. It teaches pupils that they should never underestimate the power of their voice. It helps the kids and teachers to outsmart the polluters and replace their pointless plastics with something better.

The Plastic Free Schools campaign empowers pupils to make real changes in their school and community. They investigate single-use plastics, find alternatives for their school to use, and challenge polluters to change their ways.
