The view from our window is an everyday, but very personal and individual, experience. Whether a back garden, row of buildings, or a beautiful lake, it is like a snapshot of the outside world taken from the shelter and security of our home.

Views can be breathtaking or seemingly humdrum; stimulating or depressing; inspiring or blighted. This unit invites children to analyse the environmental quality of what they observe and the reasons for it, and leads them on to decision making and problem solving activities: can the view be improved, and if so, how?

Whilst local views will be a central feature in this unit, it also introduces children to the concept that in different parts of the world children will look out on landscapes which may be very different to their own. Improving these views may need more than just individual action or local support, and the unit encourages children to explore the notion of global environmental responsibility.
