We worked in partnership with Goldsmiths University, I Have A Voice and Social Innovation for all to pilot a brand new project, where Year 3 from John Donne School in Peckham researched parks and thought about different users before presenting their park transformation proposals to their local Councillor.
Collectively they were tasked with:
Investigating the ways in which young people can become expert researchers into their local parks and seek to improve the wellbeing and environmental awareness of park users of different ages and backgrounds.
Demonstrating to the students a link between the study of plants in their science curriculum and the importance of plants and biodiversity in their community and for the planet.
Preparing and creating an opportunity for students to present to policymakers and/or other influential people who could assist in exacting purposeful environmental change, including local council representatives.
