Environmentalist princess Cleanascene and evil Ratzilla will have to wait...

This is the project that did not get the funding from Awards For All. We aimed to work in collaboration with schools, get the advantage that children were already there, targeting all Balsall Heath's children. We wanted Cleanascene to be part of citizenship, planning a minimal impact on school times. 

Award For All declined the proposal based on our timings: our activities should happen outside school time hours, like clubs activities or weekends. We have already tried to work like that in Balsall Heath (Balsall Heath Clean-up Parade 2013) and the participation in our activities outside school times was very low. 

With very little time in our hands, we decided not to change our proposal and shape it differently, in the future. Our enviromental princess Cleanascene will have to wait, while evil Ratzilla is still free to mess our dirty Balsall Heath. She will come alive to a wider audience, because we believe that her message is strong, powerful and necessary.
