Peak District National Park Talk

This presentation is an ideal introduction to the Peak District National Park, looking at its special qualities and how they relate to you. Groups can also explore some of the issues facing the National Park in a role-play as tourists, conservationists, local residents, landowners, etc and try to find ways in which conflicts over land use can be overcome.

Impact of Tourism on the National Park - talk or discussion

The Peak District National Park is a very special place and attracts 10.4 million visitors a year with a visitor spend of £425 million. What is the impact of all these visits? How do "Honeypot villages", like Castleton, cope when each day as many people visit as live there. What policies and strategies exist to manage the impact of all of these tourists?

This  talk addresses many of these questions and can be delivered as a talk or a more interactive discussion (depending on age group). It can also be delivered in the National Park at your school or by video conference using the Ja.net Videoconferencing system, which is available to nearly all schools in the UK; please telephone 01629 816373 to discuss details.
