Anyone who’s ever doubted the point of children’s nature education only has to look at Spring Alive. This year, we haven’t just helped to run fun activities – we’ve helped our community to restore habitats and share innovative new ideas to make the world safer for nature and people.
Following in the footsteps of our children's education programme Spring Alive, BirdLife Partners across Europe are uniting to launch a new EU-funded environmental educational project, "Seeing the World through Nature", to benefit blind and visually impaired school pupils.
Migratory birds are arriving in Africa, and now there’s a new Spring Alive species to look out for - the Collared Sand Martin. Discover its unique relationship with quarries, and find out how one particular extraction company is making sure this species is safe at their sites.
Colliding with glass is a big danger for birds. This year, our children’s programme Spring Alive inspired young people across Europe and Central Asia to take action to make their windows bird-safe, transforming schools, homes and reaching millions through prime time TV.
Why do birds collide with windows, and how can we help? We explore the science behind bird collisions and dispel some common myths about how to prevent them, shining a spotlight on exciting projects across the world that are making a real difference. And you can join in!

One of the most familiar and popular birds in the world is declining. Rather than being sad, let's celebrate the swallows of our neighbourhood because they give a great start for young people to care about conservation.
