Green up your Act brings environmental issues to life through stimulating discussions, engaging presentations and creative hands on workshops for both primary and secondary education.
We are passionate about our core subjects: recycling, up-cycling, global/local biodiversity, endangered species and their habitats and the growing of seasonal and local food. Over the past eight years we have worked with hundreds of different schools across the UK. As our feedback demonstrates, our services have proven to be ecologically progressive, educational and fun. All our programmes can be tailored to your specific educational requirements and everything made or grown can be taken home to enjoy by your pupils.
- My son started Eco Club at West Hove Junior School this term. He absolutely loves it and is buzzing with information when he comes home. We bought strawberry plants and a planter which are now growing on our patio. Thanks so much for inspiring him to have green fingers!Rachel DunstanWest Hove Junior School
- The whole school really enjoyed your assembly about the importance of recycling which was made even more interesting when you showed them the items that had been made from recycled material. The pratical activity of recycling newspaper to make a plant pot and planting seedlings was a good hands on activity in which all of our pupils were able to experience success. Many thanks Phil!Dawn MartinCedar Centre Brighton
- Sue Quinn – The Granville Inderpendedt School Sevenoaks Sussex“A huge ‘thank you’ to Philip Hunton (Green Up Your Act) for providing each and every class in our school with an entertaining and educational workshop for our Eco Day. In keeping with our theme of ‘Recycling Waste‘ the younger children enjoyed the ‘Green Shoots’ activity, finding out about the importance of composting and planting a seed in their own recycled pot. The older pupils had a great time learning all about ‘Upcycling’ and produced a recycled notebook to take home. We will certainly be inviting Philip back in the near future.”Sue Quinn – The Granville Inderpendedt School Sevenoaks
- It was a great to see how much the students enjoyed the making their own plant pots form newspaper and planting them up with a variety of seedling to take home or grow at school. As well as the hands on activities there was really good mixture of questions, answers and discussionsK. Inkpen – Cardinal Newman Catholic School
- It’s been a real pleasure seeing my child learning about nature. Growing food and working with the seasons is a great opportunity that is sometimes missed living in the city.Rachael MaldoomIford and Kingston Primary
- We really enjoyed our workshop with Philip Hunton it was thought provoking. The students were engaged to think about, food waste, packaging nutrition, and global perspective. They thoroughly enjoyed the workshop this will be a good reminder for them to think green.Mrs Diane Calvert The Prebendal School (Chichester Cathedral School)
