EARTH EDUCATION is…

the process of helping people to live more harmoniously with the natural world by…

  • Understanding how ecosystems work
  • Developing a long lasting love and respect for the Earth and its life-forms
  • Reducing their own impact on its natural resources

AN EARTH EDUCATION PROGRAMME is…

a carefully crafted series of learning experiences which …

  • Motivate and pull the learners in
  • Emphasise major ecological understandings
  • Involve exciting tasks that are both 'hands on' and 'minds on'
  • Weave activities together with a clear, easily remembered formula to aid comprehension and retention
  • Transfer the learning tasks to both school and home by developing good environmental habits.

We believe earth education is a serious task but getting to know the natural world is a lifelong adventure full of wonderful experiences and joy.

The Magic of Earth Education

24th to 26th March 2017

Ringsfield Ecocentre, Ringsfield Hall, Suffolk, NR34 8JR

A collaborative weekend in Suffolk. Come to share our ways of engaging children and young people in learning about, and connecting to, the natural world. Continuing on from our stimulating and enjoyable weekend in April 2016, this weekend will be suitable for teachers, social workers, environmental educators, conservationists, outdoor activity leaders, bush crafters, permaculture enthusiasts and many more (attendance at the las meeting is not prerequisite for anyone wishing to come along).

Cost: £140 for full board accommodation + £30 for those attending the earth education workshop on Saturday (much less than the usual costs if booked as part of this weekend) + £5 for one year membership of Earth Education UK.
