The UK Schools Sustainability Network is part of the Generation Action work coordinated by the environmental charity Global Action Plan which has the aim that by 2030, every child will leave school prepared to act collectively for the good of people and the planet.

Whether you are a school committed to sustainability, an educator passionate about transformative learning, or a student eager to make a difference, we invite you to join us on the journey toward a more sustainable and resilient future.

Who We Are

We are a dynamic and inclusive network, bringing together regional networks of schools, educators, students, and change-makers across the United Kingdom. Our community thrives on the shared belief that education is the catalyst for building a sustainable and resilient tomorrow.

What we do

  • We provide opportunities for networks of young people to connect, share projects and ideas, and learn from each other
  • We host events with expert speakers
  • We provide opportunities for young people to learn new skills
  • We provide opportunities for young people to have meaningful discussions on important topics

Our Vision

At UKSSN, we envision a world where every school and education setting is a hub of sustainability education, fostering a generation of young minds empowered to create positive change for the planet.

Our Mission

  • Collaborate and support: to cultivate and support a national community, to enable learning, sharing, and collaboration on youth action and sustainability in education.

  • Representation and inclusivity: as a neutral organisation we aim to hold a constructive and cooperative stance to involve as many people as possible. We will do this by hosting events that are representative, diverse, and inclusive.

  • Education and empowerment: to support the development of personal, social, and workplace skills to enable and empower youth social action. We provide a platform to share ideas, views, and resources, to support youth social action.
