We will be sharing good practise and of course linking to current linked initiatives, including the National Education Nature Park. Jenny Lobo, who is the Senior Programme Officer in the North West for the National Education Nature Park will be providing a practical outdoor input as part of the session. In addition Alex Moor, who leads on ‘Where the Wildings Are‘ will be talking us through some practical examples of school ground developments.

A very packed session!
