Land for Learning
The project will be led by the Pembrokeshire County Council Sustainable Schools Project Officer together with the Biodiversity Implementation Officer and an Education Adviser, all currently funded, and a school grounds curriculum expert from the National Botanic Garden of Wales. The project will run from November 2003 to March 2006. A 'sustainable school grounds and community spaces' fund will be set up to support 12 sustainable development projects in the first year and 17 in the two subsequent years, within and surrounding the National Park. Match funding is provided by the Countryside Council for Wales and the Forestry Commission, with in-kind contributions from PCC, Wildlife Trust, Ranger service, PCNPA, Prince's Trust and school communities. The aim of the project is to assist schools to teach education for sustainable development (ESD) by enhancing their school grounds for learning, play and wildlife. Two schools will be assisted to work with their community on the development of a community space, thereby further promoting the social aspect of ESD. Outcomes of the project will be disseminated throughout the National Park and surrounding county to promote best practice for ESD.
