Event Description

Kate Howlett, a PhD student at the Museum of Zoology, Cambridge, will talk about her research into the importance of green space in UK primary schools. She will explore the benefits of exposure to biodiversity and green space for our health and wellbeing, including how this can reduce social health inequalities, and how this could be used to improve children’s wellbeing at school. She will also talk about her own research with local primary schools, what biodiversity can be found there, how these green spaces are used by teachers and what children’s drawings can tell us about children’s awareness of local wildlife and their favourite animals.

This event is organised by the Cambridge Local Group of the Wildlife Trust, and tickets can be purchased from the local Wildlife Trust website:

Tickets cost £3.09 for Wildlife Trust members, and £4.68 for non-members, of which £2.50 and £4.00 (respectively) goes directly to supporting the local Wildlife Trust’s work.
