Businesses

  • Sometimes you would like to know more about your local landscape so that you can better explain to visitors what is so fascinating about your local environment.
  • Maybe you would like to know more about the sustainable learning activities in your local area.
  • Or maybe you would like to encourage more schools and tour groups to visit your area, and engage in active learning.

The NEED project has developed a series of activites, modules and a network of learning environments that can help to improve the understanding of the local environment in the NEED project partner regions.

Accommodation providers, travels services, food and drink establishments, and visitor centres are some of the many businesses that provide customers with information about the surrounding natural environment and landscape and this information can add significant value to a business package or service.

The educational and information content provided here and through the NEED project can allow businesses to compliment their services by encouraging a better understanding about the landscape and environment.
