When we set up Trees4Scotland we wanted education to play a central role as it is going to be crucial in the fight against climate change.
Following extensive research we decided to focus on primary schools and The Tree Amigos environment project was born! We now have 10 schools on programme with the Children working through five mini projects covering:
- Climate change and global warming
- Carbon footprints
- Reducing your footprint
- Trees and the environment
- Woodland wildlife
The project is funded by Edinburgh and Glasgow airports whose staff also get involved. The final part of the project is a field trip to Teaghlach Wood when the children get to view the project first hand and help us plant some trees.
The project has its very own website that allows the schools to communicate with one another and share information
