Bulletin, Policy Updates & Resources

About the Bulletin

At the start of each month, we produce a jam-packed bulletin which we email out free to our members. It’s an amazing resource for anybody with an interest in all things related to learning for sustainability.

As well as keeping you up to date with courses and events, we use the bulletin as a way to promote our members’ hard work – and we celebrate learning for sustainability practitioners in our ‘spotlight’ and ‘photo of the month’ sections.

Have a read through our previous issues and if you have anything you’d like to send us for inclusion in a future edition, contact our bulletin editor, Katie. 

Most Recent Bulletins

The last six months of bulletins will be stored on this page. If you’d like to receive a copy of an older bulletin, please get in touch with us.
