About

The project

The Education in the Green Space project is a joint endeavour between Biological Sciences and Southampton Education School, at the University of Southampton, funded by the National Environmental Research Council. The project aims to identify barriers faced in teaching environmental topics in schools and what possible solutions are there for Hampshire schools.

This website collates information on environmental education as well as activities for both primary and secondary schools which link to the UK National Curriculum. These provide different ways in which schools can access green spaces, and lots of online resources for teachers such as videos, apps and games. 

The Education in the Green Space (EIGS) Guide is an online version of our booklet, and aims to provide an easy introduction to using outdoor spaces for education. It has been developed with teachers and environmental education experts.
