Last October, we launched a school video competition celebrating the release of Earth Heroes, by Lily Dyu – an inspiring collection of twenty inspiring stories about people saving our world. We challenged UK primary schools to tell us what they were doing to help the environment… and we were completely blown away by the response!
We had just under 50 wonderful videos submitted from pupils across the country telling us why they were Earth Heroes – and what we can all be doing to make the world a better place. Here are some of those entries:
After a lot of deliberation and so many brilliant videos to choose from, we are delighted to announce that Wilbury Primary School is the winner of our #IAmAnEarthHero video competition!
We admired all the incredible eco-efforts Wilbury Primary has made. Earth Heroes author Lily Dyu explains how we finally managed to pick a winner:
“Wilbury were chosen as the winner because their video just fizzed with action, energy and enthusiasm. Greta Thunberg has said of the climate crisis, “The one thing we need more than hope is action. Once we start to act, hope is everywhere”, and from litter-picking and second-hand book sales, to ‘unplugging’ and planting bee-friendly flower beds, Wilbury School’s Earth Heroes project exemplified this attitude perfectly.”
And here’s what Wilbury Primary school had to say:
“All the pupils that took part feel a real sense of achievement and are now even more determined to spread the message of how to be an Earth Hero. We have all been inspired by Lily Dyu’s wonderful words and can’t wait to meet her and to share the copies of her book with our the rest of the school!”
We want to say a big thank you to all the schools who took part in our video competition. Keep saving the world, Earth Heroes!
