The Young Green Briton Challenge
This exciting new pilot combines climate education with green changemaking. In its 2022-23 pilot year we reached nearly 3,000 young people across 16 diverse schools across England. The Challenge enables secondary school students aged 11-14 to learn and apply design, innovation, business and other transferable skills. Young people explore local climate and sustainability issues, receiving funding and mentorship to design and implement entrepreneurial solutions or campaigns to address the problems they identify. The Young Green Briton Challenge is delivered as a partnership between Social Innovation for All, Volunteers for Future, the Ministry of Eco Education and the Green Britain Foundation.

Primary Pioneers / eco pioneers
Primary Pioneers is a social innovation programme aimed at students in upper primary (aged 9-11). It was piloted in 2023 with over 200 Year 6 pupils preparing to transition to secondary school. The programme is designed to help pupils build transferable skills, agency, and citizenship, using design thinking to engage young people in identifying and developing solutions to issues they identify and care about within their local communities. The programme culminates in a presentation of ideas to local decision makers, including councillors, community groups, school leadership and parents. The Primary Pioneers programme builds transferable skills, whilst creating positive social impact and inspiring the next generation of social innovators. The Eco Pioneers programme includes climate education and focuses on developing local environmental solutions.
