The latest newsletter from BHee, including ideas for summer environment clubs, free workshops and resources, and local events

Summer has arrived in the world's first One Planet City!

If everyone in the world lived like an average European, we'd need 3 planets to support us. Brighton & Hove is the world's first officially designated One Planet City, and has big plans to enable residents to live well within a fairer share of the earth’s resources.

We are all playing a vital role in this process, by opening pupils' eyes to our amazing local biodiversity, and working to make our schools Eco-Schools. If you haven't been involved with the BHee project, now is the time to
get in touch.  

Best wishes, Helen and Katie 

Summer wildlife workshops

We still have a few dates available for our FREE workshops which get pupils outside and learning about local habitats. BOOK NOW! 

New resources

See our downloadable resources page for Eco Club activities for the summer term. Plus, for all those classes studying habitats this term, take a look at the BHee presentation on the Habitats and Species of Brighton & Hove.

Creatures of the night
