Green Space Dark Skies is all about connecting people to beautiful landscapes across the UK. We want to help schools, communities, organisations and individuals to develop, make new contacts and access support and resources. Together with our partners, we are creating a wide range of experiences that encourage exploration, love and care for the UK’s green spaces.
Download our Conversation Starter resources below, designed for use in any activity group setting (ramblers, makers, activists, families or even just casual book clubs!), and scroll down to find your Lumenator Guide with details about the inspiration behind the project and the technology.
We’ll be adding school and home learning resources soon so keep checking back for more.
If you want more information on community and learning opportunities please email Jasmine Bertie, Head of Learning at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you’re wondering how to start a conversation about the landscape with your group or class and don’t know where to start, or you’re looking for some inspiration, we’ve put together some free, downloadable resources for you use.
We explore subjects from dark skies to geology, accessibility to carbon footprint calculating, wellbeing and mindfulness to diversity in the outdoors; and you can take inspiration from poets, dancers, musicians and artists too.
You can also download our Lumenator Guides explaining our inspiration for Green Space Dark Skies – the 90th anniversary of the Kinder Scout Mass Trespass and the Right to Roam movement – our approach to environmental sustainability, our innovative Geolight technology and how you can help us build a free online archive of stories about our relationship to the landscape in Green Space Stories.
Here at Green Space Dark Skies, we believe that learning about our local green spaces is an important part of connecting with our neighbours, with our landscape and with our own personal stories. We look forward to seeing people of all ages and backgrounds using these resources and activities together, with family groups or with community groups and having their say about the outdoors
There will be more resources coming this summer, so keep checking this page for more details.
