Delivered in schools by our team of scientists and expert facilitators, secondary and transition year workshops tailored to each group’s interests, schedule and abilities.

Strong links are made to the national curriculum, with specific, practical actions each student, teacher, and school can easily implement to make a significant environmental impact.




During this workshop, participants learn about the factors that contribute towards climate change and the effects climate change has on our environment. Participants will also discuss ways to reduce their carbon footprint and increase sustainability within their community.

There are many simple ways we can reduce our food waste and this workshop explores why reducing food waste is vital for a healthy planet. Participants are encouraged to reflect on their own contributions to food waste before developing solutions to the issue.




This workshop enables participants to truly understand how much waste they are producing. Through activities and group-work, we delve into the different types of waste, how they are commonly disposed off, how they should be disposed of, and why it’s ultimately harmful to the planet to live a high consumerist lifestyle.



This workshop looks at where our energy comes from and the environmental effects of depending on fossil fuels as our primary source of energy. Participants will look at ways to reduce their own carbon footprint by looking at hidden energy, the energy in waste, and transport.




Critically engages with issues of what is equitable and just, and what will minimise harm to our planet. Exploring global citizenship themes enables student to grow more confident in standing up for their beliefs, and more skilled in evaluating the ethics and impact of their decisions.




This workshop provides participants with information on how to responsibly use water, and discusses the hidden water involved in producing everyday items. It encourages communities to respond effectively to water pollution and reduce their water consumption by highlighting the ways people can reduce water waste in everyday life.

                                          THE SECRET LIFE OF PLASTICS


Plastics are popular in the media right now, and this workshop will take the time to address why that’s the case. From how it’s made, to how it’s recycled. From why it’s wonderful, to why it’s not. This workshop shines a light on easy actions we can take in our daily lives in order to reduce our plastic consumption. It allows time for the participants to ponder and understand why they should buy and consume less plastic for their health, and the health of planet Earth.
