Forests for the Future

Forests for the Future is designed for upper Primary learners 10 –12 years, in England and Scotland, to explore the local and global issues surrounding climate change and sustainable development. There is  a focus on the role that trees, forests, and people can play in reducing and/or mitigating any negative impacts.

The Forests for the Future resource seeks to encourage teachers and their learners outdoors – using local trees, parks and woodland areas (private and public) to help understand climate change issues, the value of trees in the carbon cycle, and what individuals and schools can do to make a difference.

This resource has been produced and presented by The Crown Estate, in partnership with Forestry Commission Scotland, Forestry Commission England, Forest Research, and the Royal Highland Educational Trust, adapting and using the original material and activities developed by Westonbirt Arboretum.
