Learning for Sustainability Projects
We run a variety of different programmes, all designed to support Learning for Sustainability in schools across Scotland.
Curriculum for Excellence takes its shape around the capacities we believe enable young learners to live adaptively in a changing culture and an increasingly unpredictable world. Our programme for sustainable development education provides experiences which help learners to build deep, rich and connected understanding of environmental and sustainability issues in a global and local context, mobilising youth action and decision making and supporting the formation of key skills for living, learning and working in a complex and changing world.
Young Reporters Scotland
Young Reporters Scotland is for anyone aged 8-26 who wants an opportunity to have their voice heard on environmental and sustainability issues. Young Reporters Scotland is a competition, with the opportunity to win great prizes each month, as well as be entered into our annual competition.
We are also offering free Media and Sustainability workshops through Young Reporters. Find out more on our Young Reporters Scotland pages.
Climate Ready Classrooms
Climate Ready Classrooms offers free Climate Change training for secondary schools. It helps young people understand the facts of climate change and identify how they can make changes in their own school and community to reduce carbon emissions.
Wrigley Litter Less Campaign
We have been running the Wrigley Litter Less programme with Scottish Eco-Schools for the last five years. Litter Less is a Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) initiative, which is funded by the Wrigley Company Foundation. The 2017/18 campaign has now closed for applications and we look forward to bringing you stories from funded campaigns in the near future.
Low Carbon Skills
Our Low Carbon Skills resources have a range of materials to encourage and support learning around reduction of carbon footprints in our daily lives. These resources include a series of videos made with secondary school pupils looking at the ways local businesses can operate more sustainably and have successfully reduced their carbon emissions.
Scotland Lights Up Malawi
In 2014/15 we were part of a project called Scotland Lights up Malawi, along with Scotland's 2020 Climate Group, SolarAid and Glasgow Caledonian University. We worked with a selection of teachers and pupils from primary and secondary schools across Scotland to raise awareness of climate justice and support effective and knowledgable teaching around this topic. You can view some of the multi-media project pupils worked on as part of this project and download the teaching resources in our Scotland Lights up Malawi section.
