We want to empower young people to make good choices and advocate for the planet.

The climate crisis our planet is facing is of great concern for many young people. The education sector has an opportunity to play a vital role in the legacy of COP26.

We love collaborating with partners to find new ways to connect with audiences and deliver our mission of preventing extinction. Through working in partnership we also provide a wide variety of benefits to our community; enabling people to gain skills, support their wellbeing and deliver their own education curricula.

School children, aged 9-11, have completed a ‘take-over’ of the zoo, delivering public talks to inspire thousands of visitors to take action for wildlife.

Chester Zoo and Ignite Teaching School Alliance are partners in developing and delivering our #IgniteZoo curriculum design project. It’s our shared aim to advocate for conservation to become a core part of the curriculum so more children and teachers can become part of creating a better future for our planet.

Since 2017 we’ve been working with Ignite TSA to inspire schools to put conservation at the heart of their curriculum, empowering pupils and teachers to act for wildlife.

We’ve been working with Ignite TSA and 45 schools across the region to place conservation at the heart of school curriculum, empowering the conservationists of the future.
