WORKSHOP: Facing the Future: Education for Sustainability in Higher Education

SML-Joint-Glos-EfS-WSA workshop titled ‘Facing the Future: Education for Sustainability in Higher Education’ will be held at the University of Gloucestershire on 25 June 2013.

This event will be informed by the findings and experiences from the six projects funded under the University’s Learning for Sustainable Futures awards scheme in 2012-13 in order to investigate ways to understand and embed Education for Sustainability (EfS) principles in the curriculum and student support. The workshop will explore ways of reframing the curriculum and education while providing opportunities for discussion on the potential of EfS and its role within the future HE landscape.

Ann Finlayson, Director of SEEd (Sustainability and Environmental Education) and former Commissioner for Education and Capability Building for the Sustainable Development Commission, will facilitate the Interactive sessions

The Learning for Sustainable Futures scheme supports the University’s commitment to progressing EfS as an educational priority, as reflected in the Strategic Plan 2012-2017. It is a joint initiative of the Sustainability Team and Teaching and Learning Innovation.
