Engagement resources

We provide researchers with fun games and demonstrations that engage individuals with ecology, and can help you to develop new materials for your public events.

Booking our games and demonstrations

These are short, entertaining activities that help initiate a conversation about the natural world and enable individuals to share their ecological knowledge and insights.

Activities include the infamous ‘Poo Game’, ‘Mosquito Jenga’ and many more. These games can be booked out by members to use for free at public-facing events.

If you have an idea for a new game, demonstration, or online resource that engages the public with ecology, we would also like to hear from you as we can support you to turn it into reality!

To book our resources or discuss developing new ideas, please get in touch with Chris chrisj@britishecologicalsociety.org.
