Children do not experience nature enough; they’re not building dens, exploring new landscapes, hunting for bugs or creating wild art. That’s the view of a number of different research projects. Lack of contact with the outdoors has even been diagnosed as Nature Deficit Disorder. There’s no need to worry though, Field Studies Council (FSC) can help with our environmental education courses.
FSC believes the more we know about and take inspiration from the world around us the more we can appreciate its needs and protect its diversity and beauty for future generations. FSC is the only environmental education charity dedicated solely to helping people of all ages to experience the environment at first hand; to discover, explore and by inspired by the natural world.
As part of its mission FSC welcomes nearly 3,000 schools to its centres on science, geography and cross-curricular courses each year. At key stage 2 FSC provides opportunities for children to see, explore and learn in a fun, engaging manner, by immersing themselves in the natural world, taking in its sights, sounds and smells.
