Ideas for Staying Busy Outside School
Surrey Wildlife Trust
Saturday 3 December 12–3pm - this is an opportunity for young people aged 16+ to meet other like-minded young people with a passion for nature and wildlife conservation. We will spend a fun afternoon looking at trees within our woodland, learning how to identify them and the folklore that surrounds them. We will also do some fun wellbeing exercises designed to connect with each other and the woodland, and of course have some campfire snacks. A lunch of soup and bread will also be provided.
Thursday 28 March 2023 9.30am–4pm - delivered in partnership with Royal Holloway university, this promises to be a day of useful talks and workshops designed to empower young people to take action for nature, giving them tools to help tackle the climate crisis via workshops on pollinators, aquatic ecosystems and using social media to campaign and raise awareness. There will also be a talk on green careers.
Spaces for both of the events are limited, so book early!
