Earth Education for Schools

Earth Education

 

At ecoACTIVE, we know how much young people care about the environment. We want them to understand the science behind environmental issues and we empower them to make a difference. We are unique and have decades of experience in the environmental sector.

Connecting with nature lowers anxiety and improves children's mental health.

We build on children's knowledge and use that to empower them to design solutions for themselves. We create sessions that are interactive, practical and solution-focused, so that we can see the best results in a short time.

Pupils benefit from a greater understanding and engagement with their world.

Schools benefit from reducing waste and saving energy!

Primary Schools - Your Options

 

During the current Covid-19 situation, we are offering LIVE, ONLINE workshops, or ON-SITE VISITS.

 

Our Earth Education program for Primary schools is based around three important environmental themes. You can book a one-off session, or all three together. Sessions last 1hr 15mins, but are adaptable to fit in with your school timetable. The topic themes to choose from are:

FOOD PROJECT

Food should end up in our bellies, not in our bins! Enjoy a journey back to where our food comes from, discovering fun and creative solutions to reduce waste along the way. We'll meet the worms who recycle our food for us, and we learn why food is to taste, not to waste! 

RECYCLING AND WASTE PROJECT

Uncover Earth’s raw materials as we investigate where things come from and how we can reduce our impact on the world. Let's follow our wheelie bins to their dirty destinations, learning about landfill, plastic pollution and incinerators along the way. We'll discover easy waste swaps to help our environment and make things with our own recycled material.

WILD CITY PROJECT

Find out more about ecology and biodiversity in London. Learn the history of our city's green spaces, and how looking after wildlife can help our own wellbeing.

Prices from £130 per session*

 

"The session was excellent with students/teacher highly engaged and motivated to reduce their impact on the environment." Kelly, Hackney
