A Whole City Approach..
Visiting Bruge recently I was really impressed to see students from every primary school in Bruge crowd into the city centre to celebrate a whole morning of environmental projects. Led on stage entirely by students there were thousands of pupils there all participating in a variety of events on stage. Every student seemed to have prepared in some way for this project, whether it was hand made hats throughout to giant banners. Slick it certainly was and video on giant screens, singing, audience participation ensure that everyone seemed to be engaged.
This was on the one dry day sandwiched between days full of rain - lucky they were, but we thought that they would have carried on regardless of rain. The atmosphere was just excellent.
It started a conversation about when do we do things like this in the UK now? Probably not often enough.
