The John Muir Award is an environmental award scheme focused on wild places. It encourages awareness and responsibility for the natural environment, in a spirit of fun, adventure and exploration.
Connect, enjoy and care for wild places
The Award is open to all, and is the educational initiative of the John Muir Trust. Four Challenges are at the heart of each John Muir Award; discover – explore – conserve – share. For more general information on the John Muir Award click here.
The John Muir Award is available in S3 as a Health & Wellbeing option, where pupils can work towards their DISCOVER awards.
Following on from this, pupils can continue with their John Muir Award as an achievement course in the Senior Phase (S4/5/6). Pupils who completed their DISCOVER award in S3 can then progress to their EXPLORER award.
