This year’s Go Green Day is delivering a programme full of rainforest themed activities to your home. Whether you’re 4 or 104, whether you’re isolating solo or with a house full, whether you’re back at work or still balancing parent/teacher roles – we hope you’ll join us in connecting with rainforests, their human and animal inhabitants and all things green and leafy!
The activities begin with World Rainforest Day on Monday 22nd June and culminate with Go Green Day on Friday 26th June. We’ll be creating a programme of fun activities, including educational resources, forest meditations, tropical animal mask-making workshops, a pub quiz, recipes for deforestation free cakes and more!
We invite you to join us for a week of learning about, celebrating and connecting with the wonder and science of tropical forests.
