AYW Strategic Plan June 2005
Castlewellan Castle is fast becoming the new home for AYW Eden. It has afforded us many opportunities for daytime education programmes and residentials. This alliance has allowed groups and organisations to tailor their residential experience to their advantage. Watch this space for further developments.
This is one of our longest lasting and strongest Alliances. Life, formerly Blue Lough, are a high quality, safe, and fun organisation who always go the extra mile and exceed expectations everytime we use them. They are a little more expensive than most - but then you get what you pay for. Want the best? We do! AYW use Life outdoor pursuits exclusively.
Tidy Northern Ireland
Tidy Northern Ireland run Eco-Schools and we work closely with them to deliver the programme up and down the country. The Education Authority is involved as are the majority of the 5 councils. If you need general advice on the programme or if you'd like to register click on the link, contact the Eco-Schools Admin Officer on firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 0845 26 806 26.
Many of the AYW programmes at EDEN have been enhanced by the high quality material and, in particular, the professional, knowledgeable and fun education team of the RSPB. AYW highly recommends that any organisation looking to engage with nature should first look up the RSPB.
The greatest splash of colour in any AYW Eden garden are the butterflies that visit them. The Butterfly Conservation is probably the largest insect conservation charity in the world. It's main aim is the conservation of butterflies, moths and their habitats. It has a membership of nearly 10,000 and an active network of volunteers. We work together to improve habitat for our local species here in Ireland and get our children, young people and adults up close to these beautiful insects.
