Homebuilder Helps Environmental Adventurers

Youth Environmental Adventure enterprise, Camp Kernow is celebrating the success of its first year of sponsorship from west county new home builder partner, Linden Homes.

Based in Turo, The Future Roots Project has already worked in over 80 schools inspiring over 7,500 pupils.

Charlie Nicholson, Camp Kernow’s Director said:

“Linden Homes has provided valuable support to Camp Kernow in bringing a programme of exciting and innovative workshops around sustainability to children aged 7 to 14.

“The Future Roots Programme enables children to gain practical, hands-on experience of renewable energy technologies and discover how their application can help contribute to a cleaner planet.

During workshops children assemble and test kits for a range of renewable energy technologies including wind, solar, wave and hydro. They also uncover how their personal choices and actions can have an impact on the environment and together, explore ways in which they can take positive action to contribute to a more sustainable world.”

Linden Homes’ Sales and Marketing Director for Cornwall, Andy Addison, expalined:

“We are delighted to support an initiative that encourages children to be aware of what sustainable living means. We are working to tackle housing shortages throughout the Southwest by delivering high quality homes that are energy efficient and cheap to run. Our long term commitment to Camp Kernow demonstrates how we can work with local people to provide energy efficient homes, tackle fuel poverty and strengthen communities.”

The initiative will continue to reach pupils in Cornwall next year. If you think your school would benefit from a Future Roots workshop please contact Charlie Nicholson on 01872 885779 or visit www.campkernow.org.uk.

Workshops take place inside a large ‘Planet Earth’ structure which provides an inspiring learning space.
