Consultancy, Facilitated Workshops & Talks

RCE Scotland/LfS Scotland is delighted to take part in consultancy work that supports our members’ aims and objectives. We have worked on in-depth, independent reviews of programmes for large organisations and we have consulted on projects that include learning for sustainability. We also work with organisations to develop their LfS activities and we can deliver workshops or talks on LfS and the SDGs.

If you’d like to speak to us about consultancy work, delivering workshops, or presenting at an event or meeting – or any other projects or plans you need help with, please contact the staff team and we will be happy to chat things though with you.

Policy Advice & Responses

Learning for Sustainability Scotland responds to consultations on relevant policy issues, and comments on particular political events. We’re very keen to ensure that our members’ voices are heard and wherever possible, we offer webinars and other opportunities for members to hear more and share their thoughts on particular issues.

Outputs from these events are free to use for our members and are for sharing among networks, colleagues and anyone who is interested. Please do make sure that Learning for Sustainability Scotland is credited whenever the reports and documents are used. We are always happy to hear how they’ve benefited you so please keep in touch to let us know when you’ve used something.

If you would like us to respond formally to an area of policy or a specific issue, please get in touch.

You may also be interested in our quarterly policy round-ups; which contain a selection of the latest publicly-available consultations, research and policy reports from Scotland, elsewhere in UK and internationally relating to Learning for Sustainability.
