We’re extremely committed to helping protect our fragile environment, see how we try to minmise our environmental impact.
We want to show how together we can show how just one person when added to everybody else can help change the world just one single pledge at a time.

Environmental impact of Youth & Schools
At Lee Valley Regional Park Youth & Schools Service we understand the importance of sustainability and the environmental impact we have on the world. We are constantly striving to minimise our carbon footprint through a variety of basic, sensible actions such as:
Using only recycled paper for printing.
Recycling our old paper.
Providing recycled pencils to the students who visit us in the park.
Giving recycled prizes such as key rings made from vending machine cups or yoyos made from old CD cases.
Limiting the use of Youth and Schools vehicles by sharing journeys where appropriate.
Offering the use of bicycles to all our staff.
We have an online paperless comments and feedback system
We encourage respect for the environment in all our programmes through information and practical recycling tasks, we also ensure all litter produced by our students is returned to schools with them to be recycled helping not only the environment but also engendering a sense of ownership of the natural world.
