CHARNWOOD: Bringing new skills to old landscapes
Our work with artisans, groups schools, colleges and businesses in Charnwood Forest has helped us create an education and training plan which will enable people and communities to develop skills and interests in protecting the natural and cultural history of the forest.
This is part of a wider project to promote the Forest and its heritage, landscape, ecology and geology. We are working with the National Forest and the Charnwood Forest Landscape Partnership to create exciting new ways for local people to help in conserving the forest and its traditions.
To date we have been building up a profile of current activities, courses, outdoor learning, and skills with the aim of creating a picture of who uses the forest and linking these together to create an education and training plan for the next five years.
