Scotland's United Nations Recognised Regional Centre of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development

Community Learning

Community Learning and Development

The purpose of the group is to drive progress in Learning for Sustainability in the community learning and development sector in Scotland. The group met four times in 2014, revised and adopted its terms of reference and developed a joint group action plan for 2014/15.

In 2014, two new policies launched – National Youth Work strategy and Adult Learning Statement of Ambition – were shaped by LfS partners.

The group’s ‘Small steps, Big changes‘ seminar was well attended and received hugely positive feedback.

Since then, a funding proposal was developed but has been unsuccessful in achieving funding – so far.

Group members contributed to the end of UNDESD conference through workshops and information stands; delivered an awareness raising workshop on LfS to the Community Learning and Development Manager’s conference on 30/10/14 and a  LfS and Citizen Science workshop at National Youth work conference 5/11/14.

An  online CPD resource for CLD practitioners is being developed and nearing completion. For information on this task group please email here.
