As part of the Great Grimsby 10k event's focus on the environment, this year Ørsted is setting up an adventure trail in People’s Park to help young children (4-7 years) and their parents get comfortable with discussing climate change.
Children taking part in the Wonderful World Adventure Trail will also receive a new children’s book, entitled “Is This My Home?”, produced by Ørsted.
Through the bright and colourful illustrations of Korean illustrator Yeji Yun, the book follows the journey of a little girl and her mouse friend as they travel around the world.
Designed to help start difficult conversations with young children about climate change, the book also introduces the idea that our home is bigger than just our house or our town and that we all have a role to play in looking after it.
The adventure trail at the Grimsby 10k event will feature characters from the book and a special map will help youngsters navigate to the four corners of the earth and answer a series of simple questions to secure their prize – a free copy of the book and a bookmark pointing them to tips on green action we can all take.
To get involved, meet us at the Ørsted gazebo, on People's Park, in Grimsby, 21st July, from 10.30am.
