The Tread Lightly Caravan (TLC) is a mobile environmental education classroom. The TLC will show visitors how every day choices (what we buy, how we travel around, what we eat, how we heat our homes) can make a huge difference to our natural environment. The displays and exhibits will graphically demonstrate the consequences of our life style choices. Visitors to the TLC will leave with an understanding of the environmental consequences of their individual choices, and be inspired to live more sustainable life styles.
The TLC began operating in mid-2011 and since then it has been to over 60 schools and hosted nearly 10 000 children. Feedback from teachers and students has been very positive and encouraging with strong evidence of a change of attitude amongst the children's everyday habits.
