We are a small Devon-based business run by two environmental and education professionals who are passionate about the vision and mission of Planet & People, a Community Interest Company that we have worked hard to develop over the past two years.
We wear many hats and apologies, we do not always have time to send a hand-crafted, individual email to schools - we are trying to be as efficient as possible in connecting and engaging schools with the resources and funding that we have for the betterment of the natural world.
Planet & People CIC empowers the next generation by inspiring a positive and proactive response to the climate and ecological crisis through educational workshops and online membership as well as offering practical solutions for schools and businesses to reduce their impact on the environment.
We have now delivered workshops to tens of schools and over 2000 pupils across Devon and have won funding from the School of Social Entrepreneurs, The National Lottery Community Fund and other private donors. Things are starting to gain traction as we build a team and perfect our performance! We are creative, enthusiastic, knowledgeable people who have thoughtfully crafted environmental education resources into a workshop series to support teachers and schools at every level.
We have been well recommended with positive feedback from all the schools that we have attended, including comments such as:
Teacher: "The session was really well-pitched for the age range. and the content and delivery was accessible and engaging - children were learning a lot but were clearly enjoying themselves and having fun whilst looking into some deep issues." Teacher: "It was really nice to see the children feeling left empowered - that it was ok to question how adults were doing things. " Year 6 girl: "It was very good - everyone could get involved in their own way. It didn't matter if you're shy or loud, it felt like we had a say." Year 6 boy: "It was fun but it was moving - it made me feel like we can all do something to protect the world we live in."
Please ignore our technological ineptitude, we are simply spreading ourselves rather too thinly as we get this workshop series off the ground!
