A community of educators empowering students to take climate action

Primary School Youth Social Action Projects

We have an exciting opportunity for Key Stage 2 students to be supported to run their own youth social action projects. We want to empower young people to act positively on the social and environmental issues they care about.

Is your school interested in taking part in this fully funded opportunity?


What is involved?


  • A class of students from Key Stage 2 will design and carry out a project which creates positive social and environmental change within their community, through which their skills, knowledge, values, and confidence will be nurtured.
  • They will be supported by a fully trained, DBS-checked member of Global Action Plan staff who will meet with the group on a regular basis (weekly).
  • There is also a grant of £350 available to facilitate the group’s action project and help turn your students’ ideas into reality.


When is the project starting?


We hope to start working with a class of students from Key Stage 2 from September 2022 where the group will work on their project throughout the Summer or Winter term. We will be looking to establish a network of schools and look to share your projects and successes together!


Why is this project running?


Our recent research with nearly 1000 young people has found that whilst most 7-18 year olds do care about caring for other people and the environment, the majority feel alone in their concern and are afraid of speaking up for fear of not fitting in with their peers. We are keen to break this barrier down and normalise taking action on issues we care about.
