As a member organisation, it’s our role to bring people together to work on key areas of interest. Together we form task groups which encompass a wide range of topics and outcomes.
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.
A new task group is being set up by Learning for Sustainability Scotland members. If you would like to know more, please click HERE.
Click here for an indepth and insightful report written in collaboration between May East (UNITAR Fellow) and Rehema M. White (University of St Andrews, Learning for Sustainability Scotland). Here they reflect on historic and contemporary understanding of sustainable development in theory and practice in Scotland and beyond. They describe the emergence of the Sustainable Development Goals and start to explore the implications of these for Scottish institutions.
We offer a wide range of CPD opportunities for teachers and educators in Scotland to enhance their practice by incorporating LfS into their education setting. Check our events section for the latest updates on CPD courses.
Learning for Sustainability: Connecting Classrooms
This course ran from October 2015- till June 2018. We delivered both face-to-face and online courses which have supported almost 400 teachers to develop their practice in LfS and core skills across Scotland.
Discussions are now in place around developing a new programme beginning in the academic year 2018/19, details of which will be announced formally later in the year. To be kept up to date with this course and all of our course - sign up to become a member.
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 lfs. 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 through.
