Wilder Committees

Whether you have an existing green, wildlife or sustainability group or would like us to help you create one we can support you. We’ll provide you with a dedicated member of staff to guide your pupil group to design and implement their own ideas to enhance the wildlife and sustainability credentials of your setting. For secondary school aged pupils and above this also includes training on communication, public speaking and digital tools. This support is currently offered for free.
