BES Forest Ecology Group

A British Ecological Society Special Interest Group

Ecological Ambassadors Scheme from the BES

from Samina Zaman

We have just launched an ‘Ecological Ambassadors’ pilot scheme to help develop links and build relationships with PhD students and their departments with local schools. We are hoping that through developing outreach activities, this scheme will enable young people to gain an honest insight into ecology, and encourage them to consider further study in ecological sciences.

What we are looking for:

  • A current PhD student in the ecological sciences
  • A member/ or someone willing to join the BES
  • Someone who’d like to gain experience in working with A-level students and supporting their transition into Higher Education

What we’re offering our Ambassadors:

  • The BES will provide a full days training on developing outreach activities, working with school groups and the A-level biology curriculum.  This will be hosted at the BES office in London on the 9th September 2014
  • Travel expenses to attend at least two schools in your local area
  • Small grants for essential equipment (by negotiation)

There are only 10 spaces available, and the closing date for expression of interest is 31 August 2014.
