LfS Scotland wins UNESCO award!

Fri 14th November 2014 - LfS Scotland Updates

We are delighted to announce that the Communities with a Common Cause Action Learning Programme, created and delivered by the LfSS Values Task Group, won an Outstanding Flagship Project Award at the 9th Global Regional Centres of Expertise on ESD Conference held in Okayama, Japan in early November.

The judging panel were particularly impressed by the innovative nature of the project and its contribution to pushing forward the field of Education for Sustainable Development.  Delegates who listened to the presentation on the project were very excited about it and copies of the report are now being distributed to our sister RCEs all over the world.

Congratulations to Pam Candea, The Surefoot Effect; Osbert Lancaster, changemaking; Anthony Morrow, The Conservation Volunteers; Kerry Riddell, The Conservation Volunteers; and Morag Watson, Learning for Sustainability Scotland who designed and delivered the project.

Also to Lee Deane and Dawn Ewing, Bumblebee Conservation Trust; Russell Gill and Suzy Goodsir, Greener Kirkcaldy; Catherine Gee and David Gunn, Keep Scotland Beautiful; Zoe Kemp and Clive Mitchell, Scottish Natural Heritage; Paula Charleston and Mark Wells, Scottish Environment Protection Agency; Anne-Marte Bergseng and Ruth Wolstenholme, Sniffer; Johannes Butscher and Laurelin van der Molen, Stirling University; and Sue Guy and Philip Revel, Sustaining Dunbar, for making the leap of faith to join the programme and for participating so wholeheartedly.

And last but by no means least, to Helen Mansbridge at The Scottish Government who funded this project.
