Morecambe Bay Curriculum

Business, Public Sector • Lancaster

Developing a green curriculum to educate and inspire the next generation about the environment and sustainability

Lancaster University's story

The Morecambe Bay Curriculum is part of the Eden North Project; delivering tangible projects to make climate science accessible to children in the local community. The curriculum aims to ensure that the different stages of the education system, from early years to postgraduate, provide the green skills, knowledge and behaviours required by industry to respond to the climate emergency. The team works with schools, community groups and local authorities to make the topic accessible.

They have a range of projects including; investigating air pollution outside schools at drop-off times, and looking at different species that have become extinct in and around Morecambe Bay, with efforts to rewild lost species. The work also explores such as food sustainability and making informed choices.

The overall aim of the activity is to educate and empower young people to make informed and sustainable choices as they grow.
