Take action for the planet and make a pledge now so we, at Planet & People, have the funds to train the next generation of planet protectors

New stretch target

With the help of extra funding we will be able to run more workshops at different locations and start to support a team around us to spread the message of planet protection further! We will have money in the pot for the tools we need to make our eco-workshops as good as they can be and go to schools and educational institutions with the funding we need to offer free sessions for pupils.


About Us

Hello! We are, Jess and Bethia, the co-founders of Planet & People CIC. We need your help to inspire kids to LOVE the Earth through environmental education workshops.1630147434_1b0a3078-1_resized.jpg

We are a teacher and environmentalist team who have used the past year proactively to develop our ideas for environmental education and inspire future generations to live more lightly and make changes for a better, greener Earth.

We are the creators of the Planet Action Kit, an eco-activity subscription box which encourages children to LOVE the Earth. We provide workshops to accompany this and cover a range of environmental themes such as:

  • 'Seed to Spoon' - good food and where it comes from.
  • 'Reduce Waste' - sustainability in the home.
  • 'Speak Up' - youth impact on environmental change

To reach a diverse audience it is important that our workshops our accessible. We are keen to remove any barriers stopping our messa1632689981_workshop_smaller2.jpgge from being heard. Making the workshops affordable is an easy way of doing this! We would really appreciate your support in raising the funds to offer our workshops at a heavily discounted rate.
