The Forest Education Initiative (FEI) aims to increase young people's understanding of the local and global importance of trees. It promotes shared learning though a network of local groups in the UK.
The group's website at www.foresteducation.org provides information and ideas for teaching about trees, woodlands, the forest industry and timber products. Written by teachers, content is linked to main curriculum areas. There is also a dedicated learning resources section.
FEI cluster groups
FEI cluster groups are independent, locally-managed groups providing forest education. They hold teachers' workshops, produce resources and help schools to organise first-hand learning experiences for pupils in woodlands and in timber-related industries. Many FEI groups are also involved in delivering forest schools.
