Tackling Nature Deficit Disorder

MEEN ran a project supporting Manchester's young people to access the outdoors to learn, play and enjoy! It began in Summer 2012 when we ran a conference focused on the good reasons for helping young people access outdoor learning and the issues that block access. 

The project worked with three primary schools St Anne's Primary, Crumpsall Lane Primary and St Barnabas Academy who all went on a trip to the Peak District National Park. The follow up work in school built upon the experiences: St Barnabas set up an on-going after-school Nature Club for children and families; St Anne's ran an Early Years Gruffalo Day in the local river basin, whilst Crumpsall Lane wanted help in opening up a local 'Green Triangle' for outdoor learning. To learn more go to:

Thanks to Awards for All for funding this project.
