Event description

Description

Time is running out! We are at a tipping point where we have the ability to prevent irreversible damage to our planet. 2019 is the Year of Green Action; young people are demanding a greener, sustainable future which prioritises the environment. Momentum for action is building – will you be part of this change?

We want your thoughts, ideas and opinions on current environmental matters and what we can all do to make a real difference. There will be inspirational keynote speakers, hands-on workshops and an open forum to discuss and debate with fellow students.

You will learn lobbying and promotional skills, improve your knowledge of our native species and at the same time be part of something that could enhance your UCAS applications and CVs.

By the end of the day, together we will have six Pledges for Nature - six actions for schools in Surrey and beyond to adopt and make a lasting difference to the state of nature in the UK.

FAQs


What is the cost?

This event is free, but booking is essential via this Eventbrite page. It is intended to enrich the learning of 6th form students and engage them with environmental issues.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is no direct public transport to the site and there is limited parking at Nower Wood, so we are encouraging car sharing where possible. Ideally, each school can fit their attending staff and students into one car and not need to bring a minibus, which would take up additional parking space. Alternatively, parents may be able to drop off students on the morning.

What should I bring to the event?

You need to bring suitable outdoor footwear and clothing, somerthing to write on and a smart device (tablet or phone, for example) to be able to fully participate in the workshops. A hot lunch is provided, as well as refreshments thoughtout the day.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Please contact us at education.centres@surreywt.org.uk or by phone on 01372 379509
