Speaking 4 the Planet (S4P) is a public speaking and drama competition run in secondary schools to recognise and celebrate World Environment Day, a day which is endorsed and supported by the United Nations Environment Program. World Environment Day is 5 June, and each year, the UN designates a theme for attention and action. This theme is the focus for S4P speeches and performances.
Originally an initiative of KnowHands Education Consultancy and Sutherland Shire Environment Centre, starting at The Jannali High School in 2013, the program has now extended to many other local government areas and is supported by Keep Australia Beautiful’s Eco-Schools program.
S4P is managed by KnowHands Education Consultancy.
