Event description
A fun virtual hands-on workshop looking at upcyling/reuse to help grow food and support wildlife in our garden and school grounds.

About this Event

We will look at everyday materials which many call rubbish, but we call a waste resource and creatively reuse and upcycle them to help give wildlife a home, grow flowers and foods in our home gardens and school grounds.

We study the materials, what they are made of, their value for recycling and reuse, decrying littering and inspiring the next generation of green champions.

This talk and the hands on activities we undertake will help you look in a new way at the world around you and then share this new vision with your pupils. It will help you and your pupils become more inquisitive and inventive and ask questions about the unsustainable way we are using the World's resources and how we can change behaviour.

The session will include an introduction to the special qualities the South Downs National Park offers individuals and schools for enjoying our natural world and outdoor environmental education.

Delivered by Carrie Cort, founder of Sussex Green Living, who is a trained West Sussex County Council Waste Prevention Advisor and Eco Schools Assessor. Activities provide evidence against the Eco Schools topics: biodiversity, healthy living, school grounds and littering. There will be plenty of opportunity for Q&A, discussions around eco schools and ways you can reduce the carbon footprint of your school.

We will email a one page resource handout about one week before the workshop detailing the materials you need to have to hand. The session will be using Zoom and will last between 1 - 1 1/2 hours.

Thanks to the South Downs National Park for supporting this event.
