Green Schools is part of Liverpool Guild of Students ‘Green Guild’ project, in which students lead on community outreach. Student volunteers deliver fun and interactive sessions on a variety of sustainability issues and help schools to develop a ‘sustainable social enterprise project’ in their community.
School teams visit the Guild located at the heart of the University campus for a day to plan their project, pitch their ideas to each other and receive a small grant towards their project. The University’s students inspire a younger generation to live sustainably, with
themed lessons worked into the curriculum and workshops on project management skills.
From collection drives for project materials to making bird feeders or upcycled products, Green Schools offers support to schools so they can showcase their green project, take part in fundraising and spread ideas for greener living among the community in various
areas of Merseyside.
