Learning for Sustainability Scotland – Scotland’s United Nations Recognised Regional Centre of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development – is a network of organisations and individuals working to harness the full potential of learning to create a flourishing, sustainable world; where communities value the natural environment; societies are inclusive, equitable and peaceful; and a vibrant economy contributes to flourishing ecosystems.
Learning for Sustainability Scotland is hosted by the University of Edinburgh and is part of a growing global network of more than 150 RCE’s (RCE Network). This international network allows regions to share and learn from each other, and establish or strengthen international partnerships.

Monitoring, evaluating, and gap analysis of progress on Learning for Sustainability in Scotland
