Education and Understanding

We want our members and the public alike to increase their knowledge of and commitment to the South Downs. One of the very best ways of learning more about the National Park is to get out and about on foot. Friends organise walks, some of which are themed, right across the region.

Lectures & Workshops

We organise lectures and workshops on various aspects of the South Downs and have participated in the Mosaic project encouraging people from ethnic communities in urban areas to visit the South Downs.

Educational Projects

We are keen to ensure the cultural heritage of the South Downs is not forgotten and have so far run two projects called “Songs of the South Downs” and “Secret Shore“, both of which were sponsored by Heritage Lottery Fund.
