Hands-on Eco Holiday Workshops

Green Up Your Act’s range of hands-on eco workshops will ensure your holiday activities inspire everyone who takes part. Designed at a range of levels to engage the audience you want to reach and suitable for children, young people and intergenerational family groups. Each workshop explores environmental issues and brings them to life through stimulating discussions, practical and creative activities which get everyone involved. Workshops can be tailored to your setting and delivered in a group session or drop in format.

We are passionate about all things sustainable: recycling, up-cycling, stemming the tide of plastics in the ocean, global/local biodiversity, endangered species & their habitats and the growing of seasonal food.
