The Morecambe Bay Curriculum

Launched in 2020, the Morecambe Bay Curriculum project was inspired by the Eden Project Morecambe and aims to ensure that the different stages of the education system, from early years to postgraduate, provide the green skills, knowledge and behaviours required by industry to respond to the climate emergency. It is supported and delivered by teachers, early years practitioners, researchers, health professionals and community leaders who recognise that a collective approach is key to tackling the climate crisis and creating opportunities for young people.
