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.
