Introducing the Forest School Day 'Connects' Campaign

We are in our 6th year of Forest School Day and boy have we have come  a long way. With your help we have had fun shaping what Forest School Day looks like, its values and how how to celebrate Forest School. We have listened to all your ideas and thoughts on how to make Forest School Day even better.  One suggestion was to encourage further connections between participants, both in the UK and Internationally.
