    Overview

    Working with the Environmental Change Institute and Wytham Woods, the research woodland of the University of Oxford, we are able to offer this unique summer program for 16-18 year olds. We will discuss climate policies, energy policy, the climate implications for nature, how nature can help reduce the impacts of climate change, and how our food systems can help turn round our climate and biodiversity challenges. 

    We have small groups of just 8-10 students and 2 pastoral staff. Over a delightful few days in the woods and farmland, students will spend time with around experts in biodiversity, climate and sustainable farming.
