A place where people understand, learn from and appreciate their environment
Every school child in the Black Country should have access to high quality environmental education. The natural greenspaces of the Black Country are a huge but currently under-utilised resource for both formal and out-of-school learning. Black Country Living Landscape will also incorporate a programme of learning to help equip local people with the skills to take an active role in the environmental regeneration of the region. The project will offer a multitude of opportunities for learning. For example, there will be links with schools, training for unemployed people, community groups and individuals wishing to get involved as volunteers. As well as such formal delivery, there will be huge opportunities to interpret and promote the natural heritage of the area in informal ways, and through events and guided walks.
