This is your opportunity to meet all the other participants in BGF, learn more about exactly what the programme entails and have an introduction into a few of the topics we will cover throughout the year. 

This is a four day, three night residential jam-packed with talks, discussions and practical activities. It's an excellent opportunity to meet other people on the programme, develop your skills and confidence, and get to grips with environmental issues.

As well as presentations and workshops from the BGF team we have had speakers from:

BGF Summer School has previously taken place at the wonderful Centre for Alternative Technology in north Wales. Since March 2020, we have moved to an online format where we have virtual workshops and talks. However for our next cohort starting April 2022 we hope to go back to an in-person residential.


At the end of the six months we'll all come together in-person for the group project presentations and to celebrate your achievements. This will normally take place at a central location in the UK.
