EARTH EDUCATION is…

the process of helping people to live more harmoniously with the natural world by…

  • Understanding how ecosystems work
  • Developing a long lasting love and respect for the Earth and its life-forms
  • Reducing their own impact on its natural resources

AN EARTH EDUCATION PROGRAMME is…

a carefully crafted series of learning experiences which …

  • Motivate and pull the learners in
  • Emphasise major ecological understandings
  • Involve exciting tasks that are both 'hands on' and 'minds on'
  • Weave activities together with a clear, easily remembered formula to aid comprehension and retention
  • Transfer the learning tasks to both school and home by developing good environmental habits.

We believe earth education is a serious task but getting to know the natural world is a lifelong adventure full of wonderful experiences and joy.


NEW for autumn 2018: Steve Van Matre in the UK


Earthwalk Leadership Workshop with Steve Van Matre

The new book will only be available initially through these workshops, which will also be of interest to experienced earthwalk leaders wishing to explore this new collection of wonderful sensory and empathetic activities which introduce others to the natural world and help them build their own relationship with our planet.
