Litter Less call for little litter busters

Do you have a nursery class of litter busters? We are looking for 29 nurseries from the central belt of Scotland to register to take part in this year’s Wrigley Litter Less Campaign.

This is our fifth year participating in the Wrigley Litter Less Campaign, which is a Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) initiative run in 21 countries worldwide and funded by the Wrigley Company Foundation.

 

The campaign, linked to our Eco-Schools Scotland activity, encourages children and young people to take their work on litter and local environmental quality beyond the school gate and affect long-term behaviour change in their communities.

 

Over the past 4 years we have engaged - 92 schools, 2,180 educators and 32,672 children/young people in the Wrigley Litter Less Campaign in Scotland.

 

If you want to have your work raising awareness of the impact of litter and waste on your community recognised, and join a worldwide network of children and educators register your interest here, before 30 November 2016.

 

For inspiration from previous campaigns, including information about 13 schools that exhibited their project work in the Tall Ship in Glasgow visited by more than 67,000 people please see here.

 

Daniel Schaffer, Chief Executive of the Foundation for Environmental Education, adds: “FEE takes great pride in the number of students and teachers participating in the Litter Less Campaign, in the activities they engage in through this project and impact the project has on their lives and environment. The Litter Less Campaign is our organisation’s biggest project that embeds a positive and fruitful partnership between the Wrigley Company Foundation as the enabler, and FEE, its members, National Operators and participating schools as the implementers. This strong relationship allows for transparency and flexibility, which is ultimately what ensures the delivery of a fantastic campaign."
