NEWS & STORIES
Global Action Plan have an exciting opportunity for students in 10 secondary schools across the UK to take part in a free one-day workshop that exposes and tackles the harmful trajectory of the growing ‘Buy Now, Get Next Day’ culture.
If you are interested in being involved, please read the details below and complete the short online form below and a member of the team will be in touch.
Why is this the focus?

Over the next 3 years, Global Action Plan will be working with young people across the country to build a youth led campaign, calling on businesses and government to take action and make necessary changes to policy and practices.
