Marine Conservation Society

MCS is excited to be launching a new programme in January 2021: new free live lessons for children aged 7 – 11.

These free sessions will look at underwater species and their habitats, where they can be found, why they’re so important, and what impacts human’s have on these creatures and their environments.

The 30 minute lessons will be available weekdays, just email MCS to arrange the session for a time that’s convenient for you: education@mcsuk.org. There is no dedicated webpage currently, but you can find out more by emailing MCS, or having a look at their flyer.

Teach the Future

MockCOP26 was held throughout the end of November 2020, and brought young people from all over the world together virtually to discuss the climate crisis, and in particular: climate education.

You can view Teach the Future’s video report on the conference here.

One of the major outcomes of the youth conference has been the formation and creation of a treaty for urgent climate action to be sent to the Heads of State of all countries, and the Attorney General of the UN. Read More.

You can also donate to Teach the Future to help support their programmes: https://www.teachthefuture.uk/donate
