Environmental education visits for schools

We work with local residents, businesses and organisations to make Cambridge a cleaner, greener city.

One way we achieve this is by visiting local schools to teach pupils about the environment and how to look after it. Schools play a vital role in communicating messages to children – this helps us reach their families and communities as well.

Our school visits usually start with an assembly on the theme of littering, environmental crime, or biodiversity.

We follow this with classroom talks and fun, hands-on activities. The activities have developmental, educational and health benefits. They include building homes for wildlife, planting, pond dipping, litter picking and more.

Contact us to book a visit, or to find out more.

  • Our visits are free.
  • We provide most materials free of charge, although we ask schools to cover the cost of some activities.
  • We take away any waste produced.
  • We can tailor our visit to your needs and to specific age groups.
  • Our visits can form part of the Eco-Schools programme, which helps schools tackle sustainability issues.
