Solutions for the Planet has had a busy and exciting year in 2016-17, with many changes, and ups and downs.

We expanded the team to include Jess Mitchell and Sarah Milburn as regional Programme Coordinators; we secured two additional business partners – Mears Group and Arcadis to support future growth in 2017-18; we said some sad farewells, and mourned the devastating loss of our chair, Kevin Schofield, in February; we welcomed new board members and new schools; we had the privilege of working with another 3,436 young people, meaning that 2017 saw our 10,000th student on the programme; we worked with 26 schools and over 60 employees from our 4 partner companies.
