Welcome to the blog. It celebrates the many small steps of the schools aiming to become more sustainable via the 'Sussed in the Forest' project. It is these 'small steps' that children often recall years later when they've left school. Most of these schools started from nowhere, with no history of education for sustainability so we hope that you are inspired by their work. This is not a race: it may take a school three years to obtain a Green Flag or a Roots and Shoots award, but we really hope that schools enjoy the journey! A child has one chance in education so that journey is critically important.
