Learning for Sustainability Scotland: Exploring relevance and approaches in Learning for Sustainability in times of crisis and calm 03 June 2020
From Kirsten Leask on June 9th, 2020
Over the past few months people around the world have risen to the challenge of responding to global challenges manifesting at local levels. On 3rd June 2020 more than 70 LfS Scotland members from across Scotland gathered online to explore the relevance of Learning for Sustainability in working to create a flourishing, equitable and sustainable world during and beyond the pandemic.
The aims of the webinar were to:
- critically reflect on the current and future need for Learning for Sustainability (LfS) approaches
- explore the relevance and contribution of LfS in the current Covid 19 context and in future periods of crisis and calm
- share and celebrate the approaches of LfS practitioners from around Scotland who have found new ways of working to engage their communities
- inspire new thinking and approaches for the future
Learning for Sustainability approaches were shared by Rehema White, University of St Andrews and Chair Learning for Sustainability Scotland; Toby Clark, John Muir Trust; Roxana Romero, Leith Community Crops in Pots; Anya Hart Dyke, Author and Karen Carter, Lockerbie Primary School.
