Bulletin

At the start of each month we produce a jam packed bulletin which we email out free to our members. It’s an amazing resource for anybody with a keen interest in all things related to learning for sustainability.

As well as keeping you up to date with courses and events, we use the bulletin as a way to promote our members’ hard work and we celebrate learning for sustainability practitioners in our spotlight and photo of the month sections.

Have a read through our previous issues and if you have anything you’d like to send us for inclusion, contact our bulletin editor, Norah.
