Welcome to

MIDDLESBROUGH Environment City

Great Big Green Week was a resounding success for CAM and its partners! The week saw numerous events held across Teesside to celebrate this celebration of the planet.

One of the many messages from the children at Whinney Banks Primary School.

On Monday, children at Whinney Banks Primary School talked to us about all the things that contribute to climate change. They told us about their hopes for the next generation and buried carbon contributors in a time capsule to be dug up by pupils in 2050 along with their messages.

On Wednesday, we were at Archibald Primary School to deliver a climate change quiz, teach them how to take their own climate action, taught them about the decomposition of plastic waste and even made a climate change time capsule for future pupils to discover in the year 2050!

Fat Balls made by the youth clubs

Over the week, we engaged with youth clubs including at Hemlington & Coulby Newham youth clubs, where they made bird feeder fat balls – learning about why they’re important (especially around this time of year) for conservation, about different types of seeds, and how they can make them again at home with the rest of the family. We also collected acorns for an initiative to help plant more oak trees after an early Autumn meant that many oaks were shedding their acorns early.

On Thursday, we ran a session of Carbon Awareness training at Camphill Village Trust, which also saw a wild food tasting session. Participants looked at the carbon footprint of food and then got to taste some of the lowest carbon food you can eat – foraged! On Friday, we delivered a soap making workshop at School Of Apocalypse, binding natural ingredients and locally grown herbs. We were also at the Green Hub in Middlesbrough Bus Station to deliver information and workshops, where we met our friends at Bridgehill Day Services in Middlesbrough: We helped them make bug hotels, and also discussed which methods of transport are best for our environment. Great to see them!

All in all, a very busy, but successful, week!
