Involving children and youngsters

In these videos children and youngsters are the main principals. They show interest in nature, landscape, sustainability and so on, and enjoy themselves. Students give their impression by film of the 5th forum of a study visit of the Lifescape partners to the Nature Theatre in Oisterwijk. Hopefully, these videos inspire you in finding ways to involve people - not at least children - in sustaining our natural surroundings.

Schoolchildren's Exchange France - England


In 2006 a film was made of an international schoolchildren's exchange. About twenty children from the Dallington Church of England Primary School in the High Weald visited the Ecole de Dohem in the French department Pas-de-Calais. The return visit was in June 2006. People from the Lifescape partners involved - Parc Naturel Régional des Cap et Marais d’Opale and the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - and teachers from the schools talk in this film about their experiences.

This open air theatre is in decay and needs to be renewed. Several parties have different plans for revitalising the theatre, that oppose one another. During the study visit the participants of the Lifescape project discuss the possibilities to involve local people and to bridge the different interests.
