Description


The theme of this year's AGM is Transforming our World: Responding to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals through education.

The theme looks at how you can contribute to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals in Scotland and beyond through your work. Scotland has signed up to take action on the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) across all of its activities. SDG 4 is specifically about education through all aspects of life, and internationally Learning for Sustainability is considered at the heart of each of the 17 Goals.

Book now to attend our AGM where you can:

Take part in interactive workshops: you will take lots of practical ideas and skills back to your organisation on how you can contribute to the SDGs

Meet & network with members: you will have lots of time to network with people who work in your area of expertise. Share information and experience, learn about new projects, collaborate, participate and make connections.

Discover: Learn more about the future plans for Learning for Sustainability Scotland and the sector.

Vote: There are spaces on the Learning for Sustainability Scotland steering group. Help shape the future work of the organisation by voting for someone you would like to represent you.
