In September, Pinner Park Primary School children joined with delegations of children from 12 primary schools from across the country and attended the first ever YESfest (Youth Eco Summit Festival), held at West Lodge Primary School.
The event brought young people together with the aim of deepening their understanding of our relationship with the natural world, sharing ideas on the things they are doing already to make a difference for the planet and inspiring each other to take further action in their schools and communities.
The children attended sessions on nature connection, wildlife identification, and taking climate action in their schools and communities. With thanks to all participating schools and our contributors at: Eden Project Cornwall; Portland Education; Harrow Nature Heroes; Chris Holland Nature Connection and The Green Schools Project.
We are delighted to join with this excellent venture which fits so neatly with our commitment to biodiversity and sustainability education.
