Inverness High School visits to The Park Ecovillage, Findhorn

In January we held our first of many school eco visits to The Park Ecovillage, Findhorn.

15 young people in S3 from Inverness High school joined us for the day  to learn about what an ecovillage is and how they can become more aware of living sustainably in their own community. Our aim of these visits is to offer an interactive learning experience centring on ecovillages and community as a solution for climate change, delivered in the living example of Findhorn Ecovillage in Moray.

We look forward to another five schools visiting us in April and May.


Ecovillage workshop

“The singing chamber was very cool!”

“I thought the Field of Dreams was lovely and meeting the dogs was awesome! It was fun to see all the different kinds of eco houses and chat about which ones we liked best.”

“It was exciting and eventful. It was great to have a trip out away from school.”


“It was truly delightful meeting the teenagers from Inverness and gaining insight into their communities from their perspective. Witnessing the spark of possibility for change being ignited within them was inspiring. Several even reached out to us, expressing interest in additional resources for youth-driven climate action. Exploring the ecovillage during the tour provided a wonderful opportunity to delve deeper into their passions and motivations.” – Tessa Brock – Workshop presenter from The Global Ecovillage Network
