Big Schools: Green Screen Champions!

1st – 10th July
Years 5, 6 & 7

This year, the Alexandra Palace Big Schools team invites young people with a passion for the environment and sustainability to join us online and be part of the green solution. We’re bringing together industry experts with a wealth of experience and knowledge of sustainability practices working in the Film, Media and Gaming Sector – in other words our Green Screen Champions!

In this first-of-its-kind youth and schools led programme, young people will be able to hear about the groups and organisations that have created a culture of sustainability, lobbied governments and reduced their environmental impact.

Big Schools – Green Screen Champions kicks off on Wednesday 1st July. The programme continues over the course of two weeks with a mix of films, webinars, challenges and creative activities that promises to inform, challenge and inspire.

The full schedule is as follows. We’ll be adding the activites for each Green Screen Champion on their scheduled days. Just click on the links to access them. So get involved, the planet needs your help – be part of the green solution!
