Environmental Education

Love Solihull supports children and young people to learn about our environment. 

Though engagement we look to provide them with the information that helps them to become responsible citizens. 

 
We can support your school in providing resources, lesson plans and organise workshops and activities either within school or in the community.

Find out more about the topics we cover here:

 

Litter

Love Solihull can provide a practical litter picking workshop at your school or college, this can be delivered by a member of the team, or the relevant resources can be provided to deliver yourself, providing greater flexibility.

A typical litter picking workshop will include a classroom discussion or debate on the topic of litter, followed by a safety briefing and litter pick around the school grounds, neighbourhood, local park or open space. 

Additional activities can be tailored dependant on your requirements and  key stage.

Trash Picking

The 3 R's (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle)

The Council's Waste & Recycling team can provide advice on how best to manage waste and recycling in your school.

 

They have also helped produce a Love Solihull teaching resource on the topic of recycling, aimed at Key Stage 1 and 2 - download here.

Sustainability

The Council's Sustainability Team is available to support your schools ambitions to be more sustainable, whatever your starting point.

There is a network of support available to share best practice with other schools and have the opportunity to attend the annual Sustainable Schools Conference.

Schools can also apply to be part of the Greener Solihull Schools Award programme, which helps teachers and pupils learn about making their school more eco-friendly.
