Home / Scavengers #iwill project for a Waste themed campaign with Todmorden High - 5th November 2019 , by admin

Project – Making Change – Social Action Project 2020 – Making Change

Dates – October 2019 – May 2020

In a nutshell – We are a new social enterprise concerned with environmental and science education. We want to apply to CFFC to run a social action project in partnership with Todmorden High School and Todmorden Learning Centre to raise environmental awareness and promote positive behavioural change as part of the #iwill programme. https://www.iwill.org.uk/

Thanks to a grant from Community Foundation for Calderdale we can work with young people and families from Todmorden High to create a campaign around waste and creative approaches to behaviour change.

  • Social action involves activities such as campaigning, fundraising and volunteering, all of which enable young people to make a positive difference in their communities as well as develop their own skills and knowledge.
  • The #iwill Fund supports the aims of the #iwill campaign – to make involvement in social action a part of life for young people, by recognising the benefit for both young people and their communities.
