NEWS: Wildlife trust's 'life lessons'

Workshops about things like plastic pollution are being offered to children by the charity Wild Planet Trust.

It runs Paignton Zoo and Torquay's Living Coasts (pictured) in Devon and bosses believe the sessions will 'empower children and young people to make good choices for the future'.

Group Education Manager Steve Nash (pictured, below) will lead the six workshops after becoming the first educator in a UK zoo to achieve UN accreditation for 'Climate Change Teaching'.

He said: "As educators, we understand that the most important role for a teacher is to prepare pupils for the world beyond the classroom.

"It's becoming ever clearer, however, that our world is changing. Our wildlife and wild places are in trouble and we believe that the choices we make now will have a tremendous impact on the world and its wildlife.”

"The All Our Futures workshops have been developed to give young people the information they need to help solve looming environmental problems like climate change, plastic pollution and the use of resources.

"The workshops are free for the simple reason that these are hugely important topics. The more people we can get involved and taking action, the greater the impact we can have.

"Conservation is all about how people value nature and we want to show that it’s something we can all take action for, regardless of age or background."
