Celebrating 'Nature Positive 30'
We celebrate the publication of ‘Nature Positive 30’, a report teaching us that we need greater action, investment, and embracing of natural solutions to reverse the decline of biodiversity in the UK. These are values that Natural Thinkers shares.

New blog! 'Thinking about EYFS reform'
We've written a new blog about how the Natural Thinkers programme can support the delivery of the updated EYFS framework that came into force in September 2021.
You can read it on the National Children's Bureau website here.
We have been accrediting and re-accrediting settings!
During the pandemic over the last year the Natural Thinkers team in London have missed being able to visit schools and nurseries to see outdoor education in action, which is normally a routine part of their work.
Now that settings are cautiously and carefully re-opening to some external visitors, Natural Thinkers leads Jo and Jacqui have been able to visit them again.
We are very glad to say that from these visits Hitherfield Primary School Nursery in Lambeth has been accredited. Clare O' Malley at Hitherfield has just completed her training through LEAP and has been busy implementing her learning.
Watch our webinar 'Reconnecting Children to Nature'
As part of LEAP's Knowledge Makes Change webinar series, on 17th March Natural Thinkers put on an informative and inspiring webinar which you can view below. The speakers included two of our founders, community and childcare leaders, and Judy Ling Wong, activitist and honourary president of the Black Environment Network.
Thank you to all our speakers, some of which could not be included in the final video of the webinar due to data-sharing concerns. We can't wait to share more about Natural Thinkers soon.
