Musician and Educator
Jess co-founded School Councils UK and oversaw the roll out of ground-breaking school council resources reaching 50% of UK schools. Having become involved in Friends of the Earth, she began refocussing her educational interests into climate change and sustainability. As a sing-songwriter she was well placed to explore the important role of the arts in enabling children and adults understand new ways of helping create a climate safe future. Through workshops and her concert programme, “The Greener Transport Show”, she trialled materials that evolved into Project Earth Rock.
I have loved using Project Earth Rock with our pupils. The songs are engaging and interesting and support well what we are trying to achieve through the music curriculum. The lesson plans are clear and easy to use and challenge the children’s thinking on a range of environmental issues.”

I think the materials that you are producing are ideal...it is educating the teacher at the same time as educating the children. Using the arts and music is a fantastic way to embed the basic knowledge as well as getting the children curious about the subject."
