WWF's Earth Hour's Great Scottish Canvas

The Great Scottish Canvas is a creative call out to the people of Scotland and will channel our hopes for a better future. We are asking children to use this year’s Earth Hour to paint a picture, craft a poem, doodle or write something which illustrates the future Scotland they want – a future where we tackle the climate and nature crises and create a greener, fairer future for all.

A selection of creative pieces will make up the virtual Great Scottish Canvas exhibition that will be displayed to the public and decision makers in this crucial year for our planet. We will open the virtual exhibition for the new Scottish Parliament when MSPs take their seats, and put them on display as world leaders gather for the UN climate conference at Glasgow in November.

Active April

Welcome to April. This month’s Action For Happiness calendar is all about encouraging you to get active, get outdoors. Happier. Kinder. Together.

Life is happier when we get outside and move more. Join us for Active April and give your wellbeing an active boost.

Keeping active is a great way to boost our mental wellbeing. So this month we're encouraging everyone to get moving and get outdoors as much as possible. Whatever your circumstances or physical limitations, you can find your own ways to be a bit more active. We don't need to run marathons - there are simple things we can all do to take care of our bodies, like unplugging from technology, reconnecting with nature and getting more sleep!

Get set for the weekend with some fun ideas!

Spring has Sprung

Art Challenge

What changes are you noticing around you? Have you spotted any bumble bees? What flowers are in bloom? Are the birds singing louder? Do you feel a change in the air?

Spring is a wonderful time of year when so many changes in nature are happening. Spring is a time of new beginnings, spending more time outdoors and enjoying the better weather.

Doesn't the sunshine just put a spring in your step and a smile on your face? Can you draw or paint an image of springtime - what does it mean to you?

We would love to see your work. Please post it to us at campus@ourcloud.buzz by Friday 16th April.

Remember to add your name and school to the email and a little bit of text telling us about the picture you have created. We will share your work here on the ourcloud home page.
