Eight schools visit the Amex for Premier League Inspires event

Eight schools visit the Amex for Premier League Inspires event

Dozens of children travelled to the Amex to learn more about social action and environmental sustainability.

Albion in the Community (AITC) hosted the Premier League Inspires challenge development day at the Amex in March.

Secondary school students from across the south east were chosen by their local football clubs to create a social action project relating to environmental sustainability.

Each of those pupils attended the PL Inspires event at the Amex to learn more about social action, and learn how to promote and improve their own projects.

Five girls from The Regis School in Bognor Regis attended the event representing Brighton & Hove Albion.

They were joined by children from seven other schools across southern England, each representing a different football club: Chelsea, Bournemouth, Southampton, Fulham, Crystal Palace, QPR, and West Ham were all represented.

Rob Josephs, Schools Manager at Albion in the Community, said: “We’re hoping to give confidence to young people to talk about issues around sustainability – both in their community and at their local football clubs.

“At the same time we’re trying to help them learn and develop key skills such as communication, team work, and problem solving.

“These are the skills they’ll need not only at school but also in life.”
