Pearson and BBC Studios partner on Speak Out for Sustainability initiative

The joint initiative brings together educators and learners around the world to raise awareness and inspire interaction around key sustainability issues.

Leading learning company, Pearson has partnered with BBC Studios to launch a new Speak Out for Sustainability initiative.

The joint initiative brings together educators and learners around the world to raise awareness and inspire interaction around key sustainability issues.

It will officially kick off on 22 April – World Earth Day – and will include ongoing virtual events and discussions which blend Pearson learning materials with BBC Studios content to provide English language learners the tools and resources they need to speak out for a better, more sustainable world.

This will include original digital content on key sustainability issues such as carbon footprint reduction, water waste, deforestation and more. Content will be shared via the Pearson English Facebook and Instagram channels.

Both educators and learners can access ready to use English language resources based on these themes and engage with ongoing conversations across digital channels using the hashtag #speakout_for_sustainability.

“Pearson has a long history of making a positive social and environmental impact through the way we operate,” explained Chuck Melley, svp of sustainability for Pearson. “This is why I am proud that we are partnering up with BBC Studios on ‘Speak Out for Sustainability’. It forms an exciting and important initiative within our wider and ongoing commitment to create a better world through our assets as the world’s leading learning company.”

Chris Hulse, head of Motion Gallery & Studios English, BBC Studios, continued: “As part of our long-established partnership with Pearson, we are delighted to launch our Speak Out for Sustainability project, which brings together Pearson’s world-leading educational products and BBC Studios expertise in high-quality programming.

“We are confident that the content will inspire learners to reflect on various themes of sustainability and empower them to take their knowledge and skills beyond the classroom and into the real world.”
