The Activities page has a range of teaching activities, supported by downloadable Teacher notes, Powerpoint presentations and Ashden films. These can be used to promote and encourage thinking about sustainable energy in many curricular areas, while dealing with broad issues such as climate change.

The Film Resources page links to some freely downloadable films about Ashden winners and shows how they can be used as teaching resources. You can choose relevant films and use them either within the suggested activities or independently.

The School Action page has information for governors and school management teams on how the whole school community can get involved in saving enery.

These resources have been developed by teachers from Award-winning schools, and Ashden Awards judges, with support from CREATE and the Geographical Association.
