‘Educating Wales’ Young People About Climate Change’

#GivingTuesday, 28th November – 5th December

Visit our project page on the Big Give Christmas Challenge website here!


As the UK’s largest online match funding initiative, The Big Give Christmas Challenge is a great opportunity for Size of Wales to develop our Education Programme!
We believe in the power of our future generations. It is essential to connect them to the natural world from an early age and empower them to take positive action in the fight against climate change. Through the programme we offer free workshops, assemblies and special events to Wales’ school children, engaging them in fun, interactive discussions and activities based around climate change and forest protection.

It is important to note that the Christmas Challenge launches at midday on #GivingTuesday, 28th November and runs til midday on 5th December. All donations made within that window will be doubled thanks to The Big Give and their sponsors. All donations need to be made on our project page of TBGCC website. #TBGChallenge
