Taking school-age young people onto the Avon and into the Bristol Channel.
The Regional History Centre is working with the Bristol Initiative Trust's 'My Future My Choice' project to create a 'Learning Ship' to take school-age young people onto the Avon and into the Bristol Channel.
In series of land-based workshops and in a unique floating classroom, 70 of the city's young people will study the environmental, social and economic history and heritage of the tidal Avon and the Bristol Channel between Royal Portbury Dock and Steep Holme.
RHC staff and student volunteers will jointly facilitate these sessions in partnership with BIT's director of education, Dr Hugh Thomas.
The pilot project will run throughout 2013, and is part funded by a grant of £3,000 from UWE Bristol's Better Together Awards.
Other project partners include the Royal Society of Arts and M Shed, Bristol.
