This website is a free teaching resource for use in both primary and secondary.

The resources tell the story of what happened on Greenham Common following the removal of the cruise missiles in the early nineties. Using the views and actions of a wide range of stakeholders who were involved, students gain an understanding of the concepts of sustainability and enterprise.

The resource is based around nine primary and eight secondary activities all of which are curriculum based.

The resources are suitable for use in the delivery of geography, business studies, science, maths, citizenship, history, literacy and enterprise.  Alternatively, many of the resources can be used as a basis for cross-curricular project work, particularly in teaching the importance of sustainability and/or the development of enterprise capability.

Each activity has an accompanying set of teacher’s notes and suggestions as to how the resources can be used.

The website has been produced by the Greenham Common Trust with substantial support from Natural England and a range of partners and other stakeholders.

Natural England distributes funds that come from a government tax on aggregates.
