Green Days for Schools 2016

Working towards an Eco School Award and need some help?

No time to plan green activities for your school or group?

Want to get involved in environmental awareness campaigns?

Would like more curriculum enrichment activities?

We can help! Carrie who leads these sessions is a trained WSCC Waste Prevention Advisor, trained by Al Gore as a Climate Reality Leader, RHS School Gardening trained and is an Eco School Assessor. She has won many awards for her inspirational green work, the latest award being the BBC Surrey and Sussex Community Hero Green Champion.

We have planned some themed age appropriate green days and workshops which we can bring to your school, college or group.

Select any date or book one during an environmental awareness week or day, for example:

National Gardening Week   –   Earth Day   –   Compost Awareness Week
European Clean up days   –   National Walk to School Week   –   World Environment Day      National School Grounds Week – Clean up the World Weekend – Recycle Week – Zero Waste Week – Waste Less, Live More    

Through games, activities and workshops the children learn about the synergies between environmental protection, biodiversity, upcycling, recycling, gardening, and healthy eating and environmental conservation. Here are a few of the sessions we offer:

  • Recycling and the environmental benefits
  • Food waste – composting, including Green Johannas and Green Cones
  • The upcycled vegetable garden
  • Art from waste
  • Learn the art of sewing, remaking, redesign and repair
  • Grow your own revolution
  • Love your planet and atmosphere
  • An ideal future – expectations and hopes
  • Energy matters
  • Biomimicry – humans copying nature
  • Harnessing the power of the sun – solar science

Our mission is to develop a resilient, self-reliant and environmentally aware generation who live in harmony with nature.
