GET READY, GET SET, BUNT!
As part of our upcoming Show The Love campaign, we’re on the lookout for the best green heart bunting in the country that we can show off at our Green Heart Hero Awards this March at the Palace of Westminster, London. Think you and your pupils have what it takes? Gather your supplies and get busy crafting bunting full of green hearts and enter it in our competition!
This is a wonderful chance for your pupils to not only get creative, but put their minds to work thinking about how they and their friends can help protect the things they love from climate change.
All you need to get started are scissors, string, green paper/recycled material, and felt tip pens. Let your creativity fly and create a bunting as unique as your class. On the bunting, have your pupils write or draw what climate challenge they pledge to take on individually, with their family, or as a class.
The closing date for the competition is 5pm, Monday 18th February 2019. For bunting ideas and full competition details, download a copy of our Green Heart Bunting Activity Guide. Full competition Terms and Conditions are available here.
Two pupils and two teachers from the winning schools will be invited to attend the Green Heart Hero Awards at the Palace of Westminster, London, on Monday 11th March. The winning bunting will be on display for MPs to admire and the winning schools will receive a special mention in the Greenest School category, along with a chance to meet their MP. The winning schools will also receive a £300 cash prize to put towards a sustainability project in their school.
Two runner up schools will each receive two topical books and packets of seeds for planting.
WHAT CHALLENGE WILL YOUR CLASS TAKE ON? GET STARTED WITH THESE IDEAS OR USE THEM AS INSPIRATION TO SPARK YOUR OWN!

What is the Show The Love campaign?
The Show The Love campaign is a celebration of all the things we love that are at risk from climate change. Every February since 2015, hundreds of thousands of people from all walks of life have joined the campaign to start new conversations about climate change and help protect the life we love from its worst effects. Find out more.
What are the Green Heart Hero Awards?
Culminating the Show The Love campaign, the Green Heart Hero Awards are our chance to give a big round of applause to the movers, shakers, and doers who are paving the way to a cleaner future. Our inaugural ceremony earlier this year featured an incredible audience, including over 40 MPs from across all major political parties, Prime Minister Theresa May, Climate Minister Claire Perry, sport and business leaders, well known TV personalities, and inspirational community members. Find out more.
Why green hearts?
Green hearts are the emblem of the Show The Love campaign, reflecting the belief in the possibility of a cleaner, safer future; the ambition and efforts of projects big and small that are transforming communities everywhere; and the force of millions who are protecting the life they love. Over the past four years, green hearts have appeared on our favourite musicians and actors, football stars, and even astronauts!
What time and date are the Green Heart Hero Awards?
The Green Heart Hero Awards will take place on 11th March from 7-9pm in the Terrace Pavilion in the Palace of Westminster.
