Environment and Sustainability Field Trips are vital elements of the curriculum that can have major future benefits. By learning about the environment, students can help create a better planet in the future. And these topics also encourage students to get outdoors, taking education outside of the classroom and into a new stimulating setting. 

Environment and Sustainability Educational Studies are for all levels of the curriculum, from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 5. For younger educational groups, there are activities such as Exploring Materials and Change, which teaches pupils to collect, sort, identify and name natural materials, as well as Forest Skills, where students will learn to build resilience and improve their teambuilding abilities. For older classes, there are Renewable Energy and Water Treatment day trips, where students can investigate energy resources, both renewable and non-renewable. And there are also River Studies, where school groups will observe and take measurements of river channels. 

In the current climate, when environmental problems are increasingly worsening around the world, it is critical that students are educated on the importance of sustainability and looking after the environment. Here at UK School Trips, we want to encourage environmentally focused educational Field Trips, Workshops, Events and Tours. Therefore, we have listed a wide variety of fantastic professional, experienced school trip providers. So, when planning your school trip experience start searching on our site today for your memorable environmental school group experience!
