Community Consultation Comments on Education & Environment

A selection of comments from interested individuals between September 2018 and January 2019.

  • Kids/young adults could learn survival skills e.g. foraging, making structures for sleeping outside, fire skills etc.
  • Excellent ideas for children and young people - outdoor nursery activities, rewilding etc.
  • Proximity to schools means that the potential for the site to reach out to young people is huge.
  • Important to appeal to teenagers/adolescents.
  • Get kids in your committee. Do things that children actually like.
  • Sledging.
