Nature and Biodiversity Workshop – Friday 23rd June

Nature and Biodiversity Workshop – Friday 23rd June

Governments world wide are signed up to the Sustainable Development Goals. In order to achieve these goals it must be recognised by all, from policy makers through to young students, that we are dependant on nature, biodiversity and ecosystems. SEEd and the Sustainable Schools Alliance (SSA) are working to create a new Sustainable Schools Doorway to bring attention to this subject which is integral to an ecologically sound future and was not emphasised in the original Sustainable Schools Framework.

This free consultation and workshop event welcomes all teachers, educators and organisations with an interest in education in, about and for nature and biodiversity.

The day will be a motivating learning and sharing opportunity which will provide insights and practical activities for educators and enable SEEd to produce an effective new doorway.

Please do share the invite link with anyone who will be interested.

Why is Education for Sustainability important?

Why is Education for Sustainability important?

This word picture is from the nearly 700 comments listed on our Change.org petition to ‘Keep Sustainability in the National Curriculum Objectives’. I love the fact that ‘Future’ is the biggest word!

But I am really curious about all the reasons we say why ESD is needed and what we say it will do for young people, older people, communities, institutions and society. What reasons do you give?
Why not email me and let me know?

More on this later after our Evidence Policy Forum on Wednesday next week, when not only will we explore all the reasons why we say ESD is important but also what is our evidence of the impact?
25 presentations and over 80 participants – should be lively! What excites me most is the range we have from school, college, university, business, outdoor learning, community and young people. So excited! There are a few places left so hurry. Need more schools and early years case studies – so bring them along.
