Bromsgrove: involving Students

Wychavon District Group sets the scene through their new Youth Awareness Initiative Programme Involving schools and students in countryside issues can help increase local CPRE profile.

The Wychavon District Group has helped its local school's year 9 geography students with a waste management project.

The project has been set up to examine the implications to local residents of living near a landfill site and to investigate recycling techniques. Students have already made a presentation to the district group and the group presented a prize to the best geographer at Key Stage 3 to a student at the school's award evening, during which the head teacher spoke about how important it was that pupil's understood countryside issues and landscape.

The project has generated a lot of goodwill and press coverage both for the project team and CPRE under the banner High Ambitions. Conclusions are to be presented at the Wychavon AGM in November.

The District Group are now considering further countryside projects associated with biodiversity and landscape character assessment. Our tomorrow starts today, these young people are the future citizens and CPRE members needed to protect this beautiful area of rural Worcestershire.
