SEEd member Peterborough Environment City Trust have been awarded £18,995 from the grant giving organisation Postcode Lottery Trust, funded entirely by players of people’s postcode lottery, to engage with pupils and help increase the diversity of green space across the city.
The project will work with students from six local schools to create wildlife corridors that benefit both nature and the pupils. Environmental Education manager Jill Foster explains “The practical nature of this project gives the opportunity for pupils to venture outside the classroom and connect with their natural surroundings, whilst developing essential classroom-based knowledge within an exciting environment.”
The project links closely to the recent Nature and Biodiversity doorway workshop organized by members of the Sustainable Schools Alliance. You can read more about the workshop here.
