Coronavirus: Updates and information

We are adapting our services as the situation changes. For details and to find out how to get help or volunteer to help others, visit our 'Coronavirus: Help for communities' page. Please follow the official NHS and government advice.

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.
