News Detectives: Build the Change Tuesdays is a completely FREE sustainability resource for busy teachers who are looking for quick, preparation-free activities for their 7-13-year-old students.

Here are five reasons why you won’t want to miss our Wild Cities live session:

  1. Expert Guest Speakers – Conservationist and sustainability expert David Pallash from LEGO Group® will share his knowledge on how ecologists, architects, and urban planners are working together to design cities that prioritise people and nature. We will also be joined by Dr. Ollie Jones, Head of Sustainability North East at Cundall, who has a PhD in human experience and environmental psychology, Olli has extensive experience in sustainability in the built environment! That’s not all, we will also be speaking with Fiona McGain, an Outdoor Learning Officer at The Wildlife Trust and is now based at Camley Street Natural Park.
  2. Fun and interactive – Your pupils will have the opportunity to play games, interact with professionals in green careers, and explore cities from all over the world. But wait, there’s more! We’ll also be LIVE from the Wildlife Trust’s Camley Street Natural Park. This urban nature reserve is situated in St Pancras, right in the heart of central London. The park is a wonderful example of how green spaces can be seamlessly integrated with buildings, and how wildlife can thrive in even the busiest of cities. We can’t wait to show you around!
