Event description
A focus on what education for sustainability might look like in community settings, and what this means for children with Dr Elsa Lee.

About this event

Arising from a UK Research Council funded study (ESRC ES/S000151/1), based at the Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge, entitled Connecting Water to Global Citizenship via Education for Sustainable Development. Dr Elsa Lee's focus will be on what education for sustainability might look like in community settings, and what this means for children’s learning. She will contextualise my talk by providing a summary of how environmental sustainability fares in formal settings, linking this to current policy in England. She will then talk about how community-based organisations can influence this, using findings from CW2GC. Dr Lee will conclude the presentation with some commentary on why all of this matters, including responding to eco-anxiety amongst children and teaching existential issues from the teacher’s perspective.
