We run a lot of different projects. For example, we do lots of outdoor education work within schools and we do a lot of nature therapy. Some children respond better by getting them out to forests and doing walks with them, rather than in a classroom environment.
We also have an eco-adventures holiday club, a volunteering programme and a community garden, which grows vegetables and fruit.
We have a fantastic bunch of volunteers, and some of them have been helping us for years. It’s very much a family atmosphere.
It was great. It was an all-round course and that mix stood me in good stead for what I do now. I still refer back to it.
I have such fond memories of Dundee and the University.
I’m proud of what Abertay has become. It’s totally different.Jenny Robertson | The Ecology Centre | Marketing Manager
I think in all my jobs there have been things I’ve referred to, as much as I referred to my experience in previous jobs. Four years is a long time to spend doing something, and it’s not something you just forget about.
Making friends and meeting my husband! Those are the two main things. I also had an enjoyable time on the course.
I’m proud of it. It’s a very different place from when I was there, but the focus is still on making sure the education is the best people can get.
