The Small Footsteps Environmental workshops are a fun and interactive way of helping children to learn about how they can play a part in making the world a cleaner, greener place. The programme consists of a week of indoor and outdoor workshops for children aged 11 to 14 aiming to teach them about the importance of the environment and their shared responsibilities towards it. During the week, the children will take part in workshops about ecology and life cycles, bees, trees, water, food, recycling and energy. They will also be taking part in a reflective walk at a local park and finally will look into how human activity can affect Global Warming and Climate Change.
The workshops will consist of 30 young people from different faith backgrounds within Birmingham, taking part in various activities and learning about the different faith perspectives on the environment. We want to show children that people of faiths and those of no faith can work together with their shared message of protecting the earth and have a greater impact on tackling the environmental issues that affect us all.
