Sustainability workshops for schools

Learning Objective

Sustainability and 'Green' or 'Eco' issues cover a wide range of subjects. In the past we studied Environmental Science and Geography to see what was happening. Now there is also a focus on Citizenship; how we affect our environment and in turn, what we can do, and need to do, to reverse current unsustainable development practices. As the role of education in putting us on a more sustainable path continues to grow, so does the quality of the workshops available to school groups.

Perhaps you are looking for workshops relating to Biodiversity, Energy, Global Citizenship, Healthy Living, Litter, Marine, School Grounds, Transport, Waste or Water.

Additional topics we can cater for include: Healthy living; Our Food, agriculture and seasonality; Energy; Supply chains; Recycling and sustainability of materials; Environmental issues from pollution in the air and on land, to the plastic waste in our watercourses and oceans; Biodiversity and habitats; Ecology and our relationship with our environment.

Children can learn about and experience a wide variety of sustainability topics in the form of engaging online workshops, interactive in-school workshops or memorable out of the classroom visits. View our climate change and renewable energy page, browse the workshops and visits below or use the quick enquiry form to help us tailor the perfect sustainability experience for your group.
