Everyone in the school community can:
Search the map to see if your school is listed. If not, anyone can ‘list’ a school’s location (it appears after we have approved the submission). Then students, teachers and parents, when they sign up as a HEROES, can add their commitment to pick up a piece of plastic on their way to or from school.
If you are a school staff member or approved leader you can:
Please note this functionality will be open 25 May. You can register under the School category and ‘Claim’ the school. You can then do any or all of these activities:
1. Edit and share your school’s Page by adding text, images or videos to show whatever your school is doing to look after our planet. Even the smallest initiatives – it’s a start. The Page appears on a global list and we hope others will follow your lead. We have only just launched the School category, so please be a leading school.
2. As the whole school or class/es or the environmental group to pick up plastics in the school or nearby for 30 to 60 minutes each month. Count it and make an entry on your Page. Kids making a difference – others will follow.
3. Encourage your school community to sign up as HEROES and Follow the school Page. NOTE: Students do not add the exact address where they pick up plastic on their walk to or from the school – a total of HEROES shows against the school.
Also, keep a watch out for notices about activities of remote island schools. This is related aspect of our Foundation and we hope in the future to be able to create communications between other schools and these island schools. We will keep you posted.
Only sign up as a school if you are a teacher who will be responsible for managing the account – you can share editing permission. If you are a student you can sign up as a HERO and follow the school. Talk to teachers about claiming the school.
