Island Explorers

Project: Non-funded project

Project Details

Description

Island Explorers is an education programme that offers primary age pupils (age 7-12 years) the opportunity to learn about sustainability and explore new cultures and geographies through islands. Island Explorers uses the context of island life to explore sustainability and current global challenges, such as sustainable energy and climate change. The programme draws on the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Island Explorers runs over four years and is in its fourth year. It is currently present in schools in Glasgow, the Uists (where all materials are also present in Gaelic) and Reunion. The programme is currently pump primed by the University of Strathclyde, but further funding is currently being sought in order to enable its geographical expansion.
