Introduce environmental education to schools

Many local environmental charities or natural reserves offer free or low-cost education presentations or field trips for school-aged children - often it is simply a matter of asking. They usually focus on environmental problems facing your area, or tours of the natural features it has to offer. They often tailor their programs to the national curriculum, ensuring that children can easily make the link to their classroom education.

If you would like environmental education to have a higher priority in your children's school, spend  some time investigating the organizations that offer educational resources. It is a good way to increase awareness among students, teachers and other parents.
