UK GREEN SCHOOL AWARDS

Inspiring young people

TOTAL actively supports and engages with local schools in the


regions around the UK where it is present. Our long history of
involvement in education also extends to support for
environmental initiatives. The Green School Awards, organised
by the Young Peoples Trust for the Environment (YPTE), were
launched in 2006 to encourage cross-curricular work on the
environment in primary schools and stimulate interest in both
conventional and alternative energy sources.

The Awards enable teachers to bring the environment into many areas of study across the national
curriculum for England, Wales and Scotland.

Participating schools develop projects which compete for regional awards, with regional award
winners then going on to a National Green School Awards final ceremony. During school term
2009/2010, 264 schools engaged in this national initiative and simultaneous national final ceremonies
were held in June 2010 at London Zoo and the Glasgow Science Centre. The winning school, Pilling
St John's Primary School, received a cash prize. The Green School Awards will continue for a fifth
year during school term 2010/11. For more information please visit
