They will bring their rich experience of learning in museums and historic venues to take an active role in developing and strengthening a public programme to support learners of all ages and backgrounds to engage with the project’s research outcomes.

The project is particularly committed to working with young people by offering hands-on outdoor learning opportunities that will complement the PSHE (Personal, Social, and Health Education) objectives now mandatory in primary and secondary schools, emphasising the importance of, and connections between ‘sufficient sleep’ and ‘time spent outdoors’ for the maintenance of physical and mental health.
