Learning for Sustainability Scotland is Scotland’s United Nations Recognised Regional Centre of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development. It is a network of organisations and individuals working to harness the full potential of learning to create a flourishing, sustainable world; where communities value the natural environment; societies are inclusive, equitable and peaceful; and a vibrant economy contributes to flourishing ecosystems.

Learning for Sustainability Scotland is hosted by the University of Edinburgh and is part of a growing global network of more than 125 RCE’s (Regional Centres of Expertise). This international network allows regions to share and learn from each other.

Learning for Sustainability Scotland’s members work together to deliver LFS across all aspects of learning and advance practice of LfS through:

  • Identifying and sharing existing knowledge, expertise and lessons learned between Scotland’s educators, institutions and communities.
  • Actively generating new knowledge and approaches to LfS through cooperative partnerships, projects, initiatives and research.
  • Monitoring, evaluating, and gap analysis of progress on Learning for Sustainability in Scotland.
  • Providing advice on LfS to practitioners, policy and decision-makers.
  • Sharing their learning internationally and providing a mechanism for members to learn from others around the world as part of the RCE Network.
