UK Schools Sustainability Network visit Wytham

A group of students at Hill End

Wytham Woods and Hill End hosted a visit from UKSSN 8th - 11th July. The purpose of UKSSN is to bring together young people from across the country to collaborate on issues they are about, to share ideas and experiences. At Wytham we are ideally placed to assist with groups like this owing to our rich tapestry of natural habitats and the world-class research carried out here, but also the legacy of education which the site at Hill End brings. We introduced the group to members of our research community, including bat researcher Dani Linton, entomologist Tom Atkins and bird & small mammal field assistant Julia Haynes.

The visit was arranged by our Youth Educator in Residence, Dr Kim Polgreen, who was also instrumental in organising the Green Futures Conference, with which the visit culminated on 11th July. The UKSSN students helped set up for the event, and participated in its workshops.

To read about what the students gained from this visit in their own words, check out this article by Year 12 student Nor, featuring artwork and a poem by Year 11 student Camille.
