The Field Studies Council (FSC) positively impacts people and planet.
Our impact comes from providing outstanding experiences for people to connect with the environment, learn about it, and make choices that help protect it. This was the vision of FSC’s pioneers when they first met during World War Two.
Every year, our charity works with over 150,000 children and young people. We help them understand and value the natural environment upon which we all depend, especially now during a climate and biodiversity crisis.
Now we’ve brought together some of FSC’s latest projects, stories, and statistics in a colourful report for you to enjoy. This includes new sections about our response to Covid and launching Eco-Skills and Youth Council.
How can I help?
Please tell people about the FSC’s impact. The easiest way is to share this webpage with your friends and colleagues through email and social media.
If you’re able, please donate to help FSC help disadvantaged children and marginalised young people. Every year, demand for FSC’s environmental education far exceeds our charitable funds. We know people are missing out experiences they need to protect the environment, improve their wellbeing, and live sustainably.
Every £ donated helps people who can’t otherwise access high quality fieldwork and resources. Donating to FSC is quick, secure and trusted by supporters across the UK.
