Better Planet Schools is an online environmental education programme, created by the Young People's Trust for the Environment to engage children and teachers in the UK's primary schools. The programme aims to engage students and teachers to learn about and take action on key issues like saving energy to tackle climate change; reducing use of plastics and other waste and increasing recycling; fast fashion; air pollution; and creating new habitats for wildlife to thrive. Schools choose three modules per year, with each module lasting a school term. With new modules being created each year, children and schools can be engaged year after year in learning more about key environmental issues and how they can make a difference with their actions.
There are opportunities to sponsor this initiative starting at just £100 per school per annum.
Our flagship initiative was established in 2018 with an aim of securing £100 million worth of funding to support cities and towns to become
cleaner, healthier and more prosperous places to live, work and visit. To date we have secured £48.8 million for 'sustainable city' projects, which have supported energy efficiency and generation investments in schools, helped build a business case for investing in green infrastructure and developed road maps to accelerate the transition to a circular economy.
We focus on delivering support to the UK's cities and towns across three main areas: achieving net zero (incl. energy efficiency and renewable energy programmes and the transition to a circular economy); building climate resilience (incl. urban greening, nature-based solutions and improving air quality); and innovative financial solutions (incl. both private and public sector sources of funding).

The Green Square Mile is an Ibex Earth led initiative that has been designed to raise awareness about global conservation issues and help some of the world's most incredible conservation charities and NGOs secure funds to combat those issues. We have set out an information
page about why we are taking action to protect global biodiversity via the Green Square Mile here.
It provides an excellent opportunity for corporates to sponsor a project that can help protect some critically threatened habitats or endangered species. Our current focus is on supporting the work of Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya and Helping Rhinos. We have already created a conservation module for Better Planet Schools with the help of Ol Pejeta and will be using that to outreach 20,000 primary schools about the threat of poaching to rhinos.
