We're offering local schools the opportunity to have a one-hour climate change themed lesson delivered for free by the Eden Team at their own school, on 20 September 2019. It’s all part of our Make the Change event, to mark the start of global activity around the UN’s Climate Action Summit, when we're offering free entry to the Eden Project all day.

Eden’s School Team has created a free Climate Response lesson plan for teachers to use, with the aim of supporting young people to be able to respond confidently to the climate emergency and in a way that makes sense to them – whether they see themselves as Doers, Shoppers, Learners, Shouters or all of the above. 

On 20 September Eden Team members are offering to visit a limited number of local schools free of charge to deliver the lesson to interested students. It’s a one-hour session suitable for upper KS2, KS3 and KS4. It can also be delivered as a shorter assembly.

Our commitment is to travel to schools by low-carbon means so our ability to deliver these sessions is limited by staff availability and geography. We’ll do what we can!
