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.
CLIMATE ACTION for YOUTH:
Students will be presented with the most up-to-date climate science, and be asked to critically look at the issue of climate change. Students will discuss and debate their views on climate change, and take part in group activities which question the best ways to tackle the problem.
FOOD WASTE :
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.
BRIGHT ABOUT ENERGY:
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.

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.
