Children, Outdoor Play and the Environment

We would like to help children acquire a knowledge of ecological principles.

Several activities will be developed to:

  • stimulate their interest for maintaining a balanced environment
  • promote public awareness
  • designate green spaces for relaxation, exercise and  play
  • develop their desire to protect the environment and to solve problems
  • help children practice habits and learn practical skills  regarding renewable and recyclable material

With our long-term partners at Stomping Ground we have created work sheets to help children learn and interact with the environment which we have promoted on our Penrith in Bloom Facebook page and told our story for our colleagues at Cumbria in Bloom.
