About Transform our World

 

Transform Our World is an online, centralised, quality-rated resource hub to help teachers to bring environmental action into the classroom.

 

 

The hub provides opportunities for students to lead impactful projects that tackle the root causes of the climate breakdown and biodiversity loss.

 

The range of curriculum-linked, low prep resources is teacher-reviewed and tested, to ensure it is as easy as possible for teachers to channel the excitement around climate action into schools-based activities.

 

Transform Our World is funded through the #iwill Fund, which is made possible thanks to a £50 million joint investment from The National Lottery Community Fund and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to support young people to access high quality social action opportunities, such as volunteering and campaigning, around the issues that matter to them.

 

The Transform Our World Mission
No Translation

We’re in a state of emergency. Unprecedented levels of collective change are needed if we are to avoid the collapse of our living world. 

  

Young people in their millions are calling for immediate action to tackle climate breakdown and biodiversity loss. Educators tell us they feel huge pressure to prepare young people to respond to this concern and yet report very little confidence, or available training and support, to do so. 

  

Young people can see that an emergency of this scale needs actions that address fundamental causes not just the symptoms. Research shows that engaging young people at a values, rather than a behavioural level, can result in broader and deeper environmental and societal action. As well as having a beneficial effect on their wellbeing. 

 

Educators play a key role in encouraging young people to take changemaking action as well as ensuring that this action builds these compassionate value sets.  

 

Supported by the #iwill campaign, we acknowledge that teachers need support, tools and inspiration from the environmental and education sectors to help make this happen. We pledge to come together to provide this.
