Campaign-in-a-Box is our citizenship challenge. The kit contains everything an adult mentor needs to facilitate a series of workshops looking at the barriers to walking. They can then develop solutions and share these with local decision-makers.
Participants will gain expertise in:
• project management
Campaign-in-a-Box is suitable for classroom work, off-curriculum days, out-of school clubs and youth-work settings. Each box contains a guidebook for adult mentors, and a workbook for students. It also contains resources which enable young people to run their own ‘street treasure hunt’. This helps identify the barriers to walking on their streets; create films, posters and leaflets; run a ‘walking buddy’ scheme for new starters and to deliver a presentation to local decision-makers.
Secondary school students in England, with a budget of at least £50 for their campaign, are eligible for a free Campaign-in-a-Box toolkit. Councils in England willing to offer a budget to school groups can also get free toolkits, while stocks last. Schools, councils and other organisations outside England can order the boxes at competitive rates.
