Key Stage 4 Restoring a historic park

This is a dynamic and engaging role-play activity that aims to increase young people's appreciation of public parks and the issues surrounding their protection, funding and management. It supports work in citizenship, in which students learn how people can have a say in matters that affect their environment, and how through discussion, negotiation and compromise they can effect and influence change. It also helps students to appreciate the needs of others in the community and to respect their views when formulating plans for shared space.
