Plus, win £15,000 for your school!
NatWest has launched a new initiative to help engage primary schoolchildren and schools across the UK in the climate change debate.
Across the country and through its NatWest, Royal Bank of Scotland and Ulster Bank brands, the bank is offering schools up to £15,000 to support their own climate change project and have their work shown to world leaders at the COP26 climate change conference in November.
The bank is partnering with Top Trumps, one of Britain’s best-known childhood games, to create the competition, MoneySense Climate Savers Top Trumps.
Starting 1st September and running until 30th September, the competition is asking primary school pupils to design Top Trumps cards that show actions that have a positive impact on the planet and perhaps save money, for example, switching to a reusable water bottle or using second-hand books.
The competition aims to motivate young people to play their part in tackling climate change and help give an international issue local relevance.
Of the schools taking part, 26 winning ideas will feature in an exclusive deck of cards, with the winning pupils having the opportunity to share their ideas in a film to be shown at COP26 in Glasgow this November. The bank is principal partner of the climate summit.
In addition, teachers who enter their pupils into the Climate Savers competition have an opportunity to win up to £15,000 for their school, for an environmentally sustainable project as well as a host of other sustainable prizes.
