Free outdoor education for teachers

Each year the South Downs National Park Authority hosts a gathering of teachers and ‘learning outside the classroom’ providers to share ideas and inspiration around using the Park to enhance learning. This free teacher’s conference has some inspirational keynote speakers, such as Dr Sue Waite and Ian Blackwell from Natural Connections and Pam Ellis and Claire Aspinall from Park Discoverers.

Carrie Cort, Environmental Educator and Climate Campaigner will be delivering a workshop with Nicola Peel, founder of, Solutionist, Environmental Education, and Speaker, entitled ‘Solutions and Systems’. This session will focus not on the environmental problems we are currently faced with, but on the solutions. Through looking at Biomimicry, (humans copying nature), we will explore green chemistry, architecture, energy and transport and we will tap into the best Research and Development department known. Understanding the importance of closed loop systems is vital for the future of our planet.

The 2017 conference will be held at Plumpton College, East Sussex on Wednesday 29 March 2017, 9am until 4.30pm. Take a look at the exciting agenda or the workshop information can be seen here

About Carrie Cort

My name is Carrie Cort, I set up Sussex Green Living out of concern for the way we humans are treating the planet which sustains us. With motherhood in 2008 came concern about environmental sustainability and a burning desire to learn how we can live more environmentally friendly lifestyles, in harmony with nature. I have always had a passion for the countryside, animals and the natural environment. Most of my career has been spent in marketing and communications, mainly within education and the landbased industries, latterly using the power of video communications. In an effort to help create a climate for change I decided to use my knowledge and digital skills to share ideas which anyone can adopt, saving money and the planet. I’m not an expert, just an ordinary person who is on a greening journey and wanting to pass on what I’ve learnt to others. Let’s all make some simple changes, become more resilient and try to lead simpler, less materialistic and consumerist way of life.
