About the resources


What is Breathing Places?

Breathing Places is a campaign to help you make space for nature. It began in 2005. The BBC's Learning department teamed up with partners nationwide to offer events, advice and inspiration to the public.

What did Breathing Places do for schools?

Between 2008 and 2010, the campaign also produced education resources, under the banner Breathing Places Schools.

Schools could sign up to receive free printed 'Do One Thing' activity packs, as well as items like trees and seeds to help them take part.

What happened to Breathing Places Schools?

The BBC's involvement came to a scheduled end in 2010, although many of the partner organisations continue to work with primary and secondary schools.

Are the Breathing Places Schools resources still available?

We feel that the downloadable resources that were on the Breathing Places website are still useful to schools. We want teachers still to be able to find them.

As the Breathing Places website is no longer maintained, the Schools website is a better home for the resources and stories it used to contain.

That way, we hope, even if you've never heard of Breathing Places you can still find useful resources to help you plan lessons and think about making nature part of your school curriculum.

Can schools still sign up to Breathing Places?

Please note that there is no longer any facility to sign up as a Breathing Places School. Nor are there any free resources, except of course for what you can download from this site.
