PACE for UK schools
Tusk and Siren Conservation Education have worked with teachers and Development Education experts to create educational resources for UK schools, based on the PACE packs used in conservation education programmes across Africa.
The resources are available in return for a donation to Tusk, which goes towards shipping PACE packs to Africa.

“An excellent resource showing positive images of Africa, with really well thought-out activities and discussion points.”

Teaching Geography magazine recommends PACE DVDs "to any geography teacher as it creates a very positive outlook that combines many aspects of development such as population and resources, urban issues, sustainability and local action."
