Planning my Local Area

If you could change your local environment for the better, what would you do? Build solar farms? Add cycle paths? Create more green spaces? This activity gives students the chance to use their imagination and re-plan their local area to make it better for all the people, creatures and plants that live there.

Once the students have designed their ideal environment they will be encouraged to find one aspect they could help implement in real life

In this activity you and your students will:

Research their local area.

Plan and draw out sustainable improvements.

Try to put one element of their plan into action.

Optional: Add to your local area map (


To increase the students’ awareness of improvements that could be made to their local environment and to seek ways to implement them.
