There is also an interview with Donnie Macleod of HMIE, on getting young people interested in nature.

The Expand Your Classroom event was held in Perth in March and organised by Learning through Landscapes, the UK School Grounds Charity, better known north of the border through its Scottish programme, Grounds for Learning.
