In this issue, we ask how PTAs can take action to tackle the climate crisis and highlight projects that are already making a difference. For a unique event in 2024, why not add some culture? From jazz to opera to a Spanish fiesta, PTAs have tried it all. Read their inspiring success stories. It’s (honestly) never too early to start planning the summer fair, so we’ve compiled a list of the most exciting star attractions to help you build anticipation. But if you fancy a break from events, read how three PTAs ran profitable fundraisers that everyone loved! Find all this and more in the spring 2023 issue of PTA+ magazine.
