Green issues are a global concern, but Britain is leading the way with great green innovation. This year's Olympics will set a new record – as the most environmentally friendly games ever.

If you'd like to talk about green issues and the environment in class, there is a Green is Great lesson plan on the British Council TeachingEnglish site.


You might not think of Britain as a tropical country, but at the Eden Project they have their very own rainforest! Richard learns about the centre's cutting-edge work in research and education, and pretends to be a bat for one of the world's rarest plants.


Richard is blown away by the cutting edge of green technology, and sees how London's Olympic Stadium wins gold in the green Games.
