Earthwatch has 40 years experience of bringing people and science together to address global environmental challenges.

We are excited to tell you about the launch of our new UK-based programme for educators. ‘Teach Earth’ is a fully-funded one-week residential programme that combines ‘hands-on’ climate change research and tailored learning sessions.

Teach Earth will train teachers to integrate environmental literacy and innovative, enquiry-based learning into their teaching, helping to engender a connection to and passion for nature in the many students that they teach.

This summer, Earthwatch is inviting teachers from secondary level state schools in the Thames Valley to take part in this unique initiative. We are offering a limited number of these fully-funded places on this special Earthwatch project in Oxfordshire’s Wytham Woods. The project runs from 29 July to 4 August.

Teachers will work alongside scientists researching the impacts of climate change on UK forests. Applying what they learn from the research, they will explore the role of education in addressing global challenges, and develop plans to raise the profile of environmental issues inside and outside the classroom.

We welcome applications from secondary level teachers of any subject. For more information and to place applications, visit our website www.earthwatch.org/teachearth. Please call or email us with any questions on 01865 318860 / education@earthwatch.org.uk.
