Despite the current adverse conditions many amazing organisations are continuing to do great work, across the UK and internationally, and here we’re excited to share with you some of the great things our members have been doing, and the fab opportunities and resources they’re offering.
RSPB are looking for talented young artists to take part in their 2020 WildArt competition. The competition is open now until the 28th of August 2020. There are two categories; ‘Real Life’ which uses traditional art mediums such as paints or pastels, and ‘Go Wild’ which encourages art created from a range of different materials and can include sculpture, collage, or anything you can think of. There are three age categories for entrants: ‘Under 8’s’, ‘8 – 12’ and ’13 and Over’. Check out their website for more information, full rules, and entry guidelines.
Looking for educational, inspiring and fun activities for your children to do at home? PECT has created a multitude of downloadable resources to enhance your children’s understanding of the world around them and to enable them to discover more about the environment.
Their new Nature’s School resource is all about bringing families together to enjoy, appreciate and protect their time together. By doing so it can have a positive effect on physical and mental health and ultimately our natural environment as well. Why not start by downloading a free star gazing app onto your phone and trying to find the constellations, satellites or even the International Space Station high above us. We’ll be sharing new resources regularly on our Facebook page, but you can also access them here. We’d love to see how you get on with the activities, do let us know! #NaturesSchool
On the first Wednesday of every month EAUC hold their online sharing series, an opportunity for those working in further and higher education to come together to debate and ask questions around sustainability topics within institutions. There are still two sessions left and you can get involved for free as long as you have access to Zoom and a computer. Join in on the 6th May and the 3rd June 2020.
LOtC have put together a comprehensive list of learning resources which you can use as lesson plans, to keep children learning while schools are closed, and as ways to embed learning once back in the classroom. These resources are free to access, or you can become a member of CLOtC to access more detailed resources.
