About this Task Group

To advance LfS in colleges and universities, LfS Scotland works in partnership with the Scottish branch of the Environmental Association of Universities and Colleges (EAUC).  One of the main ways we work together is by supporting the EAUC-Scotland Topic Support Networks and by putting on joint events.

Further Education

This is an ongoing networking group which meets twice yearly as one of EAUC’s Topic Support Networks to share practices on methods, research and projects, to assist college students to make informed decisions on the social, economic, cultural and environmental problems we face in the 21st century, for the benefit of both themselves and others, now and in the future, and to act upon these decisions. If you have any queries about this task group, please get in touch here.

This work builds on the Scottish Colleges' Education for Sustainable Development Initiative managed by Environmental Association of Universities and Colleges (EAUC) in January 2013. The Initiative was completed in November 2014 and a final report is available on request
