Free Upstream Battle Professional learning course

Calling all teachers across the West Partnership (Glasgow City, North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire, East Dunbartonshire, Renfrewshire, Inverclyde, West Dunbartonshire and East Renfrewshire)…

Register now for our FREE Upstream Battle professional learning course focused on marine litter, running between September 2019 and March 2020.

An estimated 12.7 million tonnes of plastic gets into the sea each and every year - that’s a truck full of litter a minute. With 80% of all marine litter coming from land, we must stop this cycle of litter and prevent it from entering the sea in the first place.

Focused on the River Clyde and its tributaries, Upstream Battle is raising awareness, gathering evidence and inspiring action to prevent marine litter at source. Communities, individuals, schools and the private and public sector are connected in one common goal: to stop litter from getting into the Clyde.  

The programme is available to all participating Early Years establishments and schools within The West Partnership Regional Improvement Collaborative. The aim is to develop confidence in delivering on each pupil’s entitlement to Learning for Sustainability and build STEM skills through the context of source to sea litter.

The programme will be delivered through a blended learning model combining face to face sessions and online learning.  There are 100 places available with a maximum of two participants per school.
