We Help Schools & Colleges

At Green Light Trust we are passionate about two key features of life on Earth - the environment we live in and people. We work on projects that involve communities in the restoration of woodland, wild spaces, grassland, wetland, as well as developing and enhancing school and community parks and gardens.

Our main purpose is to support people's appreciation and involvement in protecting the natural world we live in through education, training and practical participation. We are also committed to supporting people to improve their own health and well-being through environmental and conservation activities that all take place outdoors. Wherever and whenever possible, we aim to increase awareness of the critical importance of the impact we, as humans, are having on the environment and how we can all help to improve the health and well-being of the planet and everything that lives and grows on it.

    I started the course on Monday with no idea of what to expect from the week ahead.  I anticipated that a lot of time would be spent outside, but I worried that much of the 6 day course would involve staring at a PowerPoint presentation and being lectured about the benefits of Forest School for the young people it is aimed at.  I was delighted to be proved so wrong!
