Our Green Schools programmes works with nursery, primary and secondary schools offering age appropriate outdoor learning sessions in school grounds, local parks and greenspaces. Building on children’s natural curiosity and delight to be outside we offer a range of outdoor learning, environmental education and nature connection activities that encourage discovery, exploration and a deeper understanding of the natural world. Sessions are delivered by our Education Officer, usually by electric cargo bike! Green Schools can support delivery of the following awards:

The majority of our work is with Edinburgh schools in areas of high multiple deprivation working with children and young people experiencing disadvantage.

Training for teaching staff
