Taking Action on the UN Sustainable Development Goals across Communities & Schools Event

Thu 9th November 2017 - Courses & Events Summaries

This SDG themed network forum event was jointly hosted by the SDGs task group and the newly formed Communities & LfS task group and set up to meet both group’s outcomes and objectives. 

It was also held after members responding to our annual members survey demonstrated a need and an interest in exploring the Sustainable Development Goals in both schools and communities contexts.

The event was attended by over 40 Learning for Sustainability Scotland members and was an insightful and inspiring day. As well as hearing from speakers in a traditional way, we held pecha kucha style presentations so that our members could share their SDGs work in a new and interesting way. We also hosted networking activities and interactive workshop sessions & discussions, so that participants could increase their understanding of SDGs in communities and schools and to identify the next steps that each task group should undertake to advance the objectives of the SDGs and to widen the scope of learning for sustainability in our communities.
