The fairandfunky Sustainable Schools Conference on Firday 7th June brings schools from diverse communities together to celebrate World Environment Day and learn about Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in fun, creative and engaging ways giving innovative ideas for teachers and students to take learning back to the school environments and link to the Eco-Schools programme and beyond!


The Conference teaches on 4 SDGs: Clean Water – workshops from Water Explorers empower participants to ensure access to safe water sources and sanitation for all; Clean Energy – workshops with Energy Heroes inspire delegates to use energy in a way which is sustainable for all; Life on Land – innovative drama workshops from Pockets Theatre show how communities can live sustainably and halt biodiversity loss; Climate Actionfairandfunky lead creative arts workshops showing how we can all take action to tackle climate change and its impacts.


The conference will link with the Eco-Schools programme providing evidence for this prestigious award scheme with four brilliant workshops:


‘Choices, Choices!’ with Pockets Theatre will link to the eco-school topic of Global Citizenship as participants create dramatic performance pieces as they step into an imaginary meeting of powerful people and decide the future of their town! Will it be sustainable?


“A fun, informative conference. All children learned something new!” Purwell I & N School 2018

‘Litter Bugs’ with fairandfunky will link to the eco-school topic of both litter and marine as students create artworks from recycled materials and discover how recycling your rubbish can combat climate change and protect marine environments.


In ‘Renewable Pursuits’ with Energy Heroes delegates will explore the energy eco-school topic through maths games, quizzes and activities discover how to become Energy Heroes who take action to save the world!


And  ‘Rap Tap Tap!’ with Water Explorers links to the eco-school topic of Water; students and teachers alike will uncover some incredible facts about water around the world and create a drip, drop, tip, tap RAP to encourage others to save water too. 


All students will create individual recycled artworks to take home, along with a pack of wildflower seeds and other eco-goodies. The event will close with a Q&A and certificate presentations with a very important guest.
