The questions being asked for Earth Day (22nd April) is: 

Is apathy the biggest threat to the environment?

Each week VotesforSchools creates resources for teachers or youth leaders to hold a debate or discussion on a topical issue. Pupils then have a chance to vote and comment on the topic. They then share that information with those in authority- hugely raising the profile and impact of pupil voice. VotesforSchools typically receives around 30,000 votes each week. Examples of resources can be found here, and of data reports here.

ACT has collaborated with VotesforSchools in the past to provide a range of lessons and teaching resources to support teaching in citizenship and encourage pupils to consider what actions are needed to address the current issues.
