"The BES supported my pilot work in East Asia, it's invaluable for many young research ecologists."

The BES Education and Careers Committee promote ecology through a range of activities , which members and non-members can engage with.

The BES delivers a range of programmes enabling educators and students to experience a creative and practical learning journey of ecology. Through our wall-charts and lesson plans we promote the use of school grounds for the teaching of science for students at all levels; in the UK and abroad. In addition, our Ecological Ambassadors Scheme helps PhD students build relationships with their local schools and develop outreach activities that link to curricula in ecological sciences.  To continue inspiring the next generation of ecologists, the BES runs an annual Summer School for undergraduates. The one week residential includes plenary lectures from senior ecologists, fieldwork, workshops, careers advice and mentoring opportunities. The BES also delivers training for practitioners and teachers with regards to enhancing fieldwork learning and laboratory teaching, with a particular emphasis on the use of innovative technologies.
