Pearson has partnered with BBC Studios to launch “Speak Out for Sustainability,” a joint initiative that brings together educators and learners around the world to raise awareness and inspire interaction around sustainability issues.

"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,” says Chris Hulse, motion gallery and studios head, English, BBC Studios. “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.”

The “Speak Out for Sustainability” initiative will officially kick-off on April 22, World Earth Day, and will include on-going virtual events and discussions that blend Pearson learning materials with BBC Studios content. This will include original digital content on 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,” says Chuck Melley, senior vice president, sustainability, Pearson. “We recently re-affirmed this through our Sustainable Business Plan 2030, which has as its pillars learning for everyone, learning for a better world and leading responsibly. 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.”
