It is the vision of The Papillon Project (TPP) that children and young people in secondary schools and sixth-form colleges across Norfolk, along with their teachers, support staff, parents and members of their school’s wider community, will be inspired to lead more sustainable, ethical and healthier lives and to be more aware and respectful of the environment.
It is The Papillon Project’s ambition to achieve this vision by helping and supporting secondary schools to provide opportunities for learning about sustainability in the form of creating, developing and sustaining a school allotment. The Papillon Project believes that a school allotment should provide the following learning opportunities for children, young people and other participants:
The work and efforts of The Papillon Project (TPP) should, as all times, represent these key values and it should be the duty of those involved in TPP to set a very clear example of how to achieve them. This is especially true towards children and young people. The Papillon Project, for example, has chosen to bank with the ethical Triodos Bank and will refuse donations from individuals and organisations that it feels conflict with its mission and values. The Papillon Project will always seek to purchase ethically sourced goods and materials (e.g. Fairtrade and organic) that have a zero or low carbon footprint.
