Environmental anxiety is affecting our pupils’ mental health.

Luckily, there are many ways to address environmental anxiety in children. And, some schools are leading the charge on this by using Wall Art to give information and advice to students.

Knowledge is power! If young people understand the issues and know how they can make a difference, they’ll feel less afraid and more empowered to take action.

Real impact

We’ve had feedback from schools we’ve worked with that environmental awareness Wall Art has a positive impact on pupils.

The reality is that sustainability is everyone’s responsibility. And, while we can’t change everything, we can all change something!
