Book a workshop
This workshops examines the main causes of climate change, and encourages participants to critically assess the media’s portrayal of climate change. We will focus on actions we can take as both individuals and a community to combat climate change.
This workshop explores clothing consumption and how it contributes to both environmental and social issues. We assess our own contribution to the issue and create a fashion-forward strategy to combat textile waste
This workshop opens our eyes to the waste we often forget about – packaging, food, water, and textiles. It allows us to perform a ‘self-audit’ to understand what areas of waste we contribute to the most, and to create a plan to reduce our carbon footprint.
The Battle for Biodiversity
We are facing a Climate & Biodiversity crisis. This workshop teaches students about the importance of biodiversity and covers a number of species and locations, along with actions we can all take to support biodiversity.
Get Drastic About Plastic
We explore the good and the bad sides of modern plastics. We examine our own plastic-purchasing habits and formulate a plan to reduce our plastic dependency at both an individual and community level.
Student Council Training
This training offers a space for students to become aware of the sustainability of their school.
We will also explore good project management and start brainstorming about projects the student council can undertake during their term to implement change.
We look at the main components of ecology, ecosystems, habitats, and the importance of biodiversity within them.
There is an indoor or outdoor option to this workshop.
6 Steps to Success
The 6-Steps to Success workshop is one of our most sought-after workshops. It introduces participants to good project planning, and to conducting their own environmental projects in their school, or as part of the Young Environmentalist Awards.
6 Weeks TY Sustainable Development
This 6-week module introduces TY students to the topic of sustainable development.
We explore both social and environmental sustainability, encourage the students to think critically about what they see on media platforms, and to assess their own habits.
