Awareness • Research • Action
The Fort Climate Centre is being constructed on the site of the Countryside Education Trust. It will be a Visitor Centre, open to the public, and will be very active in the field of Education – for both adults and children.
The Centre is the result of the passion of Edward Fort OBE LLD (Hon) and his grave concern for the lack of awareness of climate change and its potentially catastrophic effects, which are only recently being identified and acknowledged.
The Visitor Centre is currently in the design phase and is planned to be finished before the end of 2021.
Our activities include …
- scientific research
- courses for school children
- training for teachers
- community courses
- networking with university research departments
- influencing key people
- making businesses aware
- pioneering action for change
- exhibtions at open events
