Northfield Ecocentre has extensive experience working with schools and colleges throughout Birmingham and the West Midlands. We provide a range of services that help students, staff and the whole organisation become more sustainable.

Click here to learn more about our new sustainability workshop for Key Stage 2 pupils Green Generations: Shaping Our Future 2017/18.

We are now taking bookings for the 17/18 academic year, so get in touch for more information and to book our facilitators to your school.

We have an extensive background in energy assessments and are able to provide advice, recommendations and costings for schools and colleges, reducing running costs of buildings and therefore allowing organisations to focus resources on delivering education. The energy reduction projects can then be linked to wider education projects including the Eco-schools and Sustainable Schools programme.

Green Generations: Shaping our future

Are you looking for something different to enhance or extend Eco-Schools or Sustainable Schools in your school?  Do you want support to connect key environmental issues to the curriculum and other important areas of learning in your school?  Do you need to enthuse children to take a more active role in your Eco-committee and related activities? Then we have just the thing for you.  Our new workshop ‘Green Generations: Shaping our future’ has been designed to meet all of the above and more.  The workshop will take your learners on an experiential sustainability journey exploring needs, challenges and choices in relation to key issues such as water, food, transport, energy and well-being.  The learning connects to key curriculum areas including Science, Maths, English and Geography and will also contribute to the development of SMSC (including values) in pupils and to the building of character and resilience. Click here for more information.
