Morecombe Bay Curriculum was Launched in 2020 by founding partners Lancaster and Morecambe College and Lancaster University, the Morecambe Bay Curriculum project was inspired by the Eden Project Morecambe. The curriculum aims to ensure that the different stages of the education system, from early years to postgraduate, provide the green skills, knowledge and behaviours required by industry to respond to the climate emergency. The Morecambe Bay Curriculum is supported and delivered by teachers, early years practitioners, researchers, health professionals and community leaders who recognise that a collective approach is key to tackling the climate crisis and creating opportunities for young people.
The heart of the Morecambe Bay Curriculum is the community, who together curate the content and bring it to life at a grassroots level. Children and young people across Morecambe Bay are focusing on themes of land, water, air, economy and community. Using the eco-systems surrounding the Bay as a classroom, young people can see the tangible positive change their actions make to the environment. The Morecambe Bay Curriculum’s community partners are ensuring that children are encouraged and empowered to become the change-makers and innovators our planet needs.
