RIBA National Schools Programme

First nationwide architecture schools programme

Helping children explore and understand the built environment

The Royal Institute of British Architects National Schools Programme aims to help children explore and understand the built environment: its impact on people and communities; how it is shaped and developed; and why good design is important. It empowers children to have an opinion on architecture and make their voice heard in the debate.
