Event Details

UN Sustainable Development Goals and Learning for Sustainability : implications and opportunities for Scotland’s schools

 

This seminar will

  • explore the contribution of Education to the new UN Sustainable Development Goals,

  • provide an update on progress with the recommendations for Scotland’s schools made in the Learning for Sustainability Report  and

  • offer an opportunity to discuss how to contribute to this work in Scotland.

In September 2015 193 countries across the world agreed the UN’s new Sustainable Development Goals. They set a challenge for every country to tackle poverty, inequality, climate change and sustainable development with Education, and learning as a central component.

In Scotland Scottish Government ministers accepted in 2013 that all learners in Scotland’s schools should have an entitlement to Learning for Sustainability supported by practitioners, a whole school approach, school buildings, grounds and policies. Learning for sustainability incorporates global citizenship, sustainable development education, outdoor learning and children’s rights.

Contributors will include Professor Charles Hopkins, UNESCO Chair of Education for Sustainable Development, Professor Pete Higgins, Chair of The Scottish Government’s LfS Implementation Group and Ian Menzies, Education Scotland.
