Become a member

There is a growing movement in Scotland – practitioners, organisations and individuals all working to enhance our lives and the lives of future generations through learning for sustainability. Be part of the movement by becoming a member of Learning for Sustainability Scotland.

It’s free to join and with every free membership you’ll receive:

  • Free monthly e-bulletin, full of news, events, courses and information on all things learning for sustainability throughout Scotland and beyond.
  • Invitations to our Annual General Meeting – giving you the chance to shape the work of the network; nominate representatives for the steering group and discuss how we can enhance your work with your own needs and requirements.
  • The chance to attend our numerous events, conferences, workshops, themed forum sessions, networking sessions and much more – always at very low cost to members (and often free);
  • Opportunities to take part in (or start up) an Action Group – a chance to work on specific topics relating to your work or area of interest with other like minded individuals;
  • Chance to promote your own events, workshops, courses, news, research, resources, photographs through our website and social media and the monthly bulletin;
  • A warm glow, from knowing you are now officially part of a movement in Scotland – and the global RCE community – that works to harness the full potential of learning to create a sustainable world.

Annual General Meetings

Our AGM is a great way to catch up with the network and meet new members. We’ve had members join together on lots of great projects as a direct result of meeting at our AGM.

We make sure that our AGM is not all about business – we provide challenging and inspiring speakers and always have at least one practical workshop, often two. Everybody gets a chance to find out about and contribute to future plans for LfS Scotland, and we always provide lots of time to network, to share best practice, discuss ideas and have a good chat – ideally over a tasty lunch and several cups of tea – but for now, due to the global pandemic, online!
