Young Changemakers

Looking for day programmes or residentials with a difference? That connects learners to nature and each other? That build confidence in their creative skills development and problem-solving rooted in the real world? Aligned to the Curriculum for Wales?

We’re going on a journey!

Our Young Changemaker programme is designed primarily for Y4-6 (ages 8-11). Delivered as 1 day workshops, stand alone or part of a series of consecutive workshops over a term/year taking learners on a ‘Changemaker’ journey from Explore & Connect, to Collaborate & Create, through to Design and Change.*

* We can also tailor to specific needs depending on your school focus for the term/year.

Real world challenges

  • Focused on real-world sustainability challenges, local and global (e.g. food, fashion, energy, plastics, etc)
  • Designed to develop knowledge, skills and mindsets needed for climate-smart futures.
  • Rooted in creative play and design-thinking that is collaborative in nature
  • Inspired by nature, our original guide to the Circular Economy

Little Bundles of Joy

Little Bundles of Joy: who doesn’t like these! Want to programme in a full term or year’s activities that covers all the learning bases? We can offer you a discounted package of 3 designed learning days with a difference. Themes that build on specific skills (such as creative storytelling & songwriting), knowledge (e.g. renewable energy, systems thinking) or mindsets (wellbeing, collaborative team-building)

Transition days

Transition Days: we understand the stress and challenge of that move to secondary school… let us help you design a day that builds confidence and connectivity for learners so they get the best possible start to a new stage of life.

Design your Future

Calling all Imagineers! The future is coming at us, and fast. This day takes learners on a journey of imagineering that allows them to design their own futures – the stuff they eat, the places and things they care about, the world they want. They take home their own blueprint for life reimagined as if people and planet mattered.
