E.Y.E. Project Eco Summits 2016

Mon 18 Jan 2016

We are pleased to announce three Eco Summits for West Sussex schools in 2016.

* The Littlehampton Academy Eco Summit in March for TLA feeder schools

We are pleased to announce that The Littlehampton Academy will be hosting their third Eco Summit on 24th March 2016 for their local Primary schools.

We look forward to offering a wide range of interactive and engaging workshops and stands to our student delegates. Nine of the Littlehampton Academy's feeder schools wil be attending the event.

Workshops will cover a range of Environmental and Sustainability themes including Water, Waste, Recycling, Global Citizenship, and Biodiversity.

The Workshop Providers who will be providing sessions on the day are:

  • Southern Water - Are You a Water Hero?
  • Wasterbuster - The Buster and Pong Recycling Song
  • Farming & Countryside Education (FACE) - From Field to Plate
  • Sussex Wildlife Trust/Wild About Worthing Project - Forest School Activity 'Firelighting'
  • Worthing Homes - Relishing Sustainability
  • The Body Shop - A Day in the Life of...
  • Sussex Green Living - Grown Your Own Revolution
  • Nicola Peel - Amazon Adventures

The Director of Wastebuster will give a Key Note Speech on 'Doing something small to make a difference’. This is a theme that Wastebuster are promoting to help children realise they can make a difference and prevent our planets resources from being wasted as well preventing litter and pollution damaging our Eco systems. Children will then be told about 15 challenges that they can undertake to make a difference under the three headings of Explorer Challenges, Mission Challenges and Reporter Challenges.

There will also be the opportunity to browse a number of stands from some of the above Workshop Providers and the South Downs National Park Authority (SDNPA)

Full details are in the process of being sent by The Littlehampton Academy to each of the 9 feeder schools that are taking part.

* Our first Chichester Eco Summit will be held in September at The Weald & Downland Open Air Museum for Chichester schools.

Hot off the Press!

Whilst in the very early stages of planning we are pleased to announce The E.Y.E. Project's first Eco Summit for Chichester Schools. This year the Chichester area Eco Summit will take place at The Weald and Downland Open Air Museum.

We would like to thank the Weald & Downland museum for offering to host our first event for schools around the Chichester area. This will be an exciting opportunity for attending schools to visit the museum which provides an inspiring learning environment, and be part of our first eco summit in the area which provides an opportunity for the young people from local schools to come together and learn about environmental matters through fun and educational activities. There will be a range of workshops on the day covering a variety of environmental and sustainability themes. The Weald & Downland Open Air Museum will indeed be one of these workshops.

The event will start and finish in the Museum’s award-winning Downland Gridshell Building which was the first timber gridshell building to be constructed in the UK. It is regarded as an iconic building and both architects and other interested visitors travel from across the UK (and further afield) to view this unique example of the technique.

Workshops will be run from a number of their historic buildings.

If you are a Chichester School interested in attending the event, or a environmental educator / local organisation interested in running a workshop at this event, please contact the Project Officer Clare Sutton on 01903 237864 x 242 or email 

***Please note that E.Y.E. Project Eco-Summits are for local schools by invitation only. If you are a school in one of these areas and wish to find out more please email eye@worthinghigh.net***
