Primary Earth Summit

In 2014 Schools from across England were invited to participate in the national Primary Earth Summit on plastic;

The Summit invited young people to consider creative and practical solutions to plastic waste and pollution, giving them an opportunity to learn about plastics as a valuable resource and the environmental impact it can have if not managed responsibly.

The 2014 Summit took place in Parliament on the 16th June, and the 20 shortlisted schools presented their ideas on tackling plastic waste to a Summit panel of political representatives, scientists, NGOs, retailers, educators and leading plastic industry representatives.

From this short list 4 schools were chosen to have the best ideas. These schools were; Field End Junior School, Elstree School, Fulneck School and Ursuline Academy.

Submissions for the Primary Earth Summit 2014 are now closed. Categories for the next Primary Earth Summit TBC.
