The Speakgreen project helps young people explore the human demand on the earth’s ecosystem, providing opportunities for leadership and participation in issues of climate change, and supporting young people to take challenging and creative action in their local environment now and for the future.

The first phase of the project focuses on the effects of climate change in Lincolnshire, working in partnership with The Mighty Creatives in Leicester setting up Green Teams in a linked network of Lincolnshire schools.

Green Teams investigate aspects of climate change in the region, initiate creative and scientific projects, and build links to local artists, scientists and journalists. The project involves the whole school and its immediate community, working closely with participating schools to deliver core educational goals inside and outside the curriculum, within the focus on climate change.
