Education Plans: Each Education Plan is divided into sections and if completed in full, takes approximately 3 hours. As part of our Christian mission, some education plans have specific faith based content. Please use whichever sections you wish and adapt the timings and content to suit your specific needs. These fun, interactive, stimulating outdoor sessions are linked to the national curriculum and use scientific enquiry to educate. Plans are free to be adapted for any religion. See the Plans

There is a stark divide between who has caused climate change and who is suffering its effects. People of colour across the Global South are those who will be most affected by the climate crisis, even though their carbon footprints are generally very low. Similar racial divides exist within nations too, due to profound structural inequalities laid down by a long legacy of unequal power relationships. Explore more
