The Young People's Trust for the Environment is a charity set up to encourage young people's understanding of the environment. Founded back in 1982, it aims to give young people a real awareness of environmental issues such as climate change, pollution, deforestation and endangered flora & fauna.
It also aims to provide balanced views to take into account the realities of the modern world. Young people need to know all of the facts in order to make their own decisions about how they want to shape their world for the future.

The Better Energy School Awards aim to assist and encourage environmental education for young people aged 5-11. They promote cross-curricular work on the environment and offer opportunities to study energy including fossil fuels and alternative technologies, linking with the National Curriculum for England and Wales and the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence.
The awards are split into four regions (South/Central, North, Wales and West, Scotland) and there will be a winner for each Award category in each region.
With over 50 prizes available and a top prize of £5,000 for the overall champion school, it's well worth taking part!
