Exploring relevance and approaches in Learning for Sustainability in times of crisis and calm

Tue 9th June 2020 - Courses & Events Summaries

We are living in extraordinary times.

On 3rd June 2020, more than 70 LfS Scotland members from across the country – and several international guests – gathered online to explore the relevance of Learning for Sustainability in creating a flourishing, equitable and sustainable world during and beyond the current COVID-19 pandemic.

The event provided an opportunity to:

  • critically reflect on the current and future need for Learning for Sustainability (LfS)  approaches
  • explore the relevance and contribution of LfS in the current Covid 19 context – and in future periods of crisis and calm
  • share and celebrate the approaches of LfS practitioners from around Scotland who have found new ways of working to engage their learners and the communities around them
  • inspire new thinking and approaches for the future

Learning for Sustainability approaches were shared by Rehema White, University of St Andrews and Chair of Learning for Sustainability Scotland; Toby Clark, John Muir Trust; Roxana Romero, Leith Community Crops in Pots; Anya Hart Dyke, Author and Karen Carter, Lockerbie Primary School.
