Coastal Connections Pembrokeshire
The project, put forward by The Darwin Centre, is to develop and deliver an education programme to primary schools, and hard to reach socially disadvantaged/excluded groups in Pembrokeshire. The programme will build upon and extend the Darwin Centre’s already successful education programme. A field based programme using the windy nature of Pembrokeshire & extraction of water from the Cleddau as context for sustainability issues. Around 300 participants per annum will visit either of two sites; Cleddau or Sand Dunes (convenient to group). The sessions give opportunities to experience parts of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park that offer lots of questions and answers to the sustainability conundrum. The windy nature of Pembrokeshire will be used to explore renewable energy potential locally and globally. The extraction of water from the Cleddau highlights the pressures put on water in Pembrokeshire and greater pressures across the UK and globally. Participants will have access to Coastal Scientists, Marine/Freshwater Biologists, and an Electrical Engineer. The access that participants will have to current thinking, cutting edge research, expertise and experience is a key exponent of this programme.
