LfS Scotland Steering Group Announcement

We are delighted to announce that our Education and Learning Coordinator, Kerr McConnell, was elected to the Learning for Sustainability Scotland steering group on 19 January 2017.

Learning for Sustainability Scotland (LfS Scotland) is a group of organisations working together to support the similarly named Scottish Government education priority called Learning for Sustainability, which encompasses Global Citizenship, Sustainable Development Education and outdoor learning and is Scotland's UN recognised Regional Centre of Expertise (RCE) on Education for Sustainable Development, based at Edinburgh University. 

 

Learning for Sustainability Scotland’s members work together to deliver Learning for Sustainability across all aspects of learning and advance its understanding and practice in Scotland.

 

The work of Learning for Sustainability Scotland is guided by a Steering Group elected by members.  LfS Scotland announced new Steering Group members following the 2017 Annual General Meeting, held earlier this month.

 

Kerr commented: “I am looking forward to supporting the work of Learning for Sustainability Scotland as a member of the steering group.  Not only will it give me the chance to continue learning, it will open doors to further opportunities as we continue to work collaboratively with other organisations in the delivery of support to schools for Learning for Sustainability, the work of the United Nations and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.”

 

“Keep Scotland Beautiful, manages Eco-Schools, the largest sustainable schools programme in the world, and through this we encourage whole-school community action on Learning for Sustainability.   I very much look forward to my time on the steering group helping to transform the UN Sustainable Development Goals into school and community actions

 

“It is the ideal opportunity in Scottish Education for embedding the priority of LfS (an entitlement for all Scottish students) within the priority of raising attainment to demonstrate that they are not mutually exclusive.
