Tide~ extended an invitation for a group of Herefordshire teachers to come together to review the potential of taking a local issue such as Polytunnels as a focus for exploring global issues. These exploratory meetings involved teachers from across the phases and from different parts of the county.  A small group** then took the ideas further through a workshop at the Tide~ Centre, some field work of their own, activities with their pupils and a writing workshop.  This article shares some of that work and links to several activities that are offered for others to use.

The project came up with a framework that could be used in any locality to explore local change and identify the potential for exploring global dimensions.
