Welcome to the BES Encounters platform! This platform was developed as part of the British Ecological Society’s (BES) ‘Connecting Schools to Nature in North-East England’ project. For more details on the project itself, head over to our project website where you can read about what schools achieved during the project and the impact the project had on participants.
This project is funded by a £248,700 grant provided by the Government’s Green Recovery Challenge Fund. The fund is being delivered by The National Lottery Heritage Fund in partnership with Natural England and the Environment Agency – you can read more about our funders and the inspiration behind the project via our official announcement page.
The British Ecological Society (BES) is the largest scientific society for ecologists in Europe, with an international membership of over 6000 people. We support the ecology community at all stages of their careers through our journals, meetings, grants, and education and policy work. You can read more about the BES’s work on their website.
