Where it all began
In 2015, Bristol was awarded European Green Capital and a programme of events and engagement was established to celebrate all 'green' things in Bristol. Funding from the Department of Energy and Climate Change and sponsorship from KPMG, Skanska, First and Bristol City Council helped us create a National Schools Programme for 7-11 year olds. We also delivered curriculum led workshops to 30,000 children in Bristol and took over 3000 children on fieldtrips.
Made for teachers, by teachers:
Jo (left) and Clare (right) were fundamental for the successful running of the National Schools programme. Jo has worked with the Wildlife Trust, Field Studies Council, and a range of environmental education charities teaching primary, secondary and PGCE students. Clare has worked for over 15 years in the education sector as an outstanding classroom practitioner.
