Experiencing nature is being increasingly recognised as a critical element of young people’s time at school.
Governments worldwide are signed up to the Sustainable Development Goals. In order to achieve these goals it must be recognised by all, from policy makers through to young students, that we are dependant on nature, biodiversity and ecosystems. SEEd has created a new Sustainable Schools Doorway to bring attention to this subject, which is integral to an ecologically sound future and was not emphasised in the original Sustainable Schools Framework.
But how is nature and biodiversity not just highlighted but embedded into learning, and how can it be monitored and seen as integral across the three C’s of curriculum, campus and community?
The Sustainable Schools Alliance, is a project of SEEd and helps schools embed sustainability and learning for sustainability. It’s a network of Schools across the UK who are working towards a Whole School Approach.
