This project is designed to engage children in the natural world, specifically the marine environment. We encourage a sense of stewardship and connectedness. BOP, within each project continues to inspire young people to collaborate and develop their own concepts, nurturing a deeper understanding of human impacts upon fragile ecosystems. Working together we produce art exhibits, culminating in a huge sense of pride amongst pupils.
