Our Youth Eco Forum have been successful in securing a grant!

In June 2020 we launched a Youth Eco Forum with the help of Catherine our resident environmental dancer (see below). The Youth Eco Forum have been successful in securing a to plan a special day for school pupils in the Horsham area in 2021, their goal is to give local young people from all backgrounds the opportunity to experience, love, and protect our planet. The YEF members believe that protecting the planet begins with being inspired to love the natural world and so want to offer a day of eco-themed activities in the School Woodland Project woods. The day would include the activities above plus:
• Outdoor dance workshop
• A nature walk
• Cooking, discussing and eating sustainable food together exploring pros and cons of different options (organic, local, plant-based, zero waste…)
• Storytelling/acting in the on-site eco theatrethere would also be the opportunity to get creative with making backdrops for the School Woodland Mobile Theatre, illustrating the importance of key climate issues.

Sussex Green Living and our partners the School Woodland Theatre Project, Moving Sounds, Nicola Peel and environmental dancer Catherine Sleeman will be available to visit schools and local events to work with children and communities on environmental issues in a fresh and creative way.
