North Warwickshire & Hinckley College: Bringing E&D alive through a World Peace Garden

Summary The overall aim was to bring Equality and Diversity (E&D) alive within every part of the curriculum, through the development of a former Horticulture area into a ‘World Peace Garden’, an open air classroom, and an organic market garden managed through a partnership between the College and Nuneaton Transition Town. The three main outcomes of the project were: a peaceful World Peace Garden (with a pagoda, a pond and covered seating areas); an open air classroom; and an organic market garden managed by Nuneaton Transition Town using the principles of permaculture. The College also now provides free accommodation for monthly Nuneaton Transition Town meetings, which are attended by the College Sustainability Officer. And over 450 curriculum staff have been trained on how to embed E&D into the curriculum.
