UN Sustainable Development Goals

The work carried out by Learning for Sustainability Scotland aligns with all 17 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We believe we have a part to play as a membership organisation to roll out the aims and values of the SDGs across Scotland, across all sectors.

Our members, too, are finding more ways to align with the SDGs and we are always looking for ways to help promote our members work.

Consultancy, Facilitated Workshops & Talks

RCE Scotland/LfS Scotland is delighted to have been invited 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 – on any other projects or plans you need help with, please contact the staff team and we will be happy to chat things though.
