Engaging Teenagers and Young Adults in Environmental Education

Tuesday 1st March 2016 at the South London Botanical Institute, London

Many environmental education organisations find it easy to engage children and adults in their activities but find it much harder to attract the age group in between! In order to address this, we’ve invited a range of speakers to share with us the ways in which they manage to do this successfully, both in the formal and informal education settings. We will hear from:

  • Justin Dillon, Bristol University (Professor of Science & Environmental Education) and formerly Kings College London and part of the INQUIRE science education project
  • Harriet Truscott, Gatsby Plant Science Education Project, Cambridge
  • Robyn Pearce, Education Manager at Royal Parks Foundation, London
  • Jonathan Mitchley, Associate Professor of Field Botany from Reading University (‘Dr M’ on his popular blog)
  • Gail Bromley, Director of bgen and formerly Head of Community Outreach at Royal Botanic Gardens Kew

There will also be plenty of time for group work, Q&A and networking to help you get the most from your day.

Workshop details:
  • Bgen member: £70
  • Concession: £40
  • Non member (includes 1 year bgen membership): £98

Please see the OUTLINE PROGRAMME for more details and email your BOOKING FORM to  info@bgen.org.uk to secure your place.
