Live Lessons

Our way of supporting you on Climate Education, Learning for Sustainability and your Eco-Schools work. 

Our Live Lessons are delivered online via Microsoft Teams, as a whole week of short sessions, or as a Monday morning of workshops followed by a live assembly on the Friday. Lessons will be accompanied by classroom activities and teaching notes, and will be recorded so you can watch them again. 

We are grateful for the continued support of RZSS and Scottish Book Trust in making these lessons happen.

Please register in advance for each session to receive resources and the link to join the session.
