Wed 19th June 2019 - News

This morning (19th June 2019) saw the launch of the new Learning for Sustainability Action Plan by Deputy First Minister John Swinney MSP. It sets out how Scottish Government and a wide range of partners and practitioners – including Learning for Sustainability Scotland – will deliver recommendations set out in the Vision 2030+ Report over the next 3-5 years.

 The Action Plan encourages practitioners to renew their commitment to Learning for Sustainability and confirms the Scottish Government commitment to Learning for Sustainability as an entitlement for learners within Curriculum for Excellence.

The vital role Learning for Sustainability can play in relation to key national strategies and programmes is also highlighted. At the launch, Deputy First Minister John Swinney commended Learning for Sustainability as an approach to learning that is at the heart of Curriculum for Excellence. He said that LfS approaches could bring the learning experiences of young people to life through the prism of sustainability, overcoming subject compartmentalisation and providing opportunities to reach out to the school’s wider community.

The Learning for Sustainability Action Plan is available to download on Education Scotland’s National Improvement Hub  in the ‘Key Strategic information’ section of the Learning for Sustainability summary page.
