Blooming Schools is an EU-funded project that exists in 4 European countries: United Kingdom, Poland, Malta and Romania. It wishes to bring a touch of green activism into schools and to the children frequenting them, by investing in the creation of wildlife gardens on the schools’ grounds, where those are absent, in order to be used as a learning environment; as a way to promote integrated learning. The project is based on the idea that young people have a better understanding of a subject when they use their 5 senses and consists of a bottom-up approach, involving pupils of secondary school (13-18 years old). By creating these wildlife gardens, we wish to give practical information to young people and teachers on what they can do, in order to save and restore biodiversity. We seek to give young people the right tools, competencies and skills to become changemakers.
