WILD SCHOOLS
Climate Action Programme

Our Wild Schools – environmental education project is FREE and available to all schools wanting to engage in learning about sustainability. Climate change is happening. It is a crisis that we all know about, and we know more now than ever before. Young people today are inheriting a world that is going through extreme, irreversible changes because of climate change, and we believe educating young people about climate change is essential.

Never has it been more important to understand how the natural world works and how to help it.

– Sir David Attenborough

WHAT IS CLIMATE CHANGE?

WHAT ARE THE IMPACTS?

MAKE A DIFFERENCE

WHAT WE OFFER


We have created a collection of interactive workshops that will inform young people about climate change. The series of workshops include; what is climate change, what are the impacts and what we can all do to make a difference. Our workshops will inform young people about climate change, as well as inspire and empower them to make active change themselves and in their community.

We can deliver our outreach programme in person, at school or via zoom as a webinar with supporting information for activities. Even if you are not in Essex we can reach you and your pupils. We also offer visits to our site at Chatham Green, where the programme and activities can be delivered.

The workshops are aimed at young people aged 10 – 14 years old.

HOW WE DO IT


We can deliver our complete series of workshops in succession so that young people can engage in all areas of climate change and sustainability.

After the interactive workshops children will engage in their own youth led action project guided by our Education Officer in the role of a Green Mentor. These youth led activities will lead to positive environmental projects that can be felt in the wider community by improving outdoor public spaces or within the school premises if unable to work further afield.

These workshops and activities will be bespoke to each class that participates and can be adjusted to accommodate every learner.
