A Manifesto for Education for Environmental Sustainability: Launch

Environment Themed

What’s on offer?

The event, in associate with BERA, will be chaired by Lynda Dunlop (University of York) and Elizabeth Rushton (King's College London), with responses from Molly Hucker (climate activist), Judy Ling Wong (Black Environment Network) and Lord Jim Knight (Labour Member of the House of Lords and Chair of the Centre for Accelerating Social Technology). The manifesto presents priorities at the level of the class, school, community and policy level. We invite responses from those with the power to put these teacher and youth perspectives into action. It presents an opportunity to engage with the manifesto, hear from the participants and share your perspectives.

What’s it about?

Education has a key role to play in creating long-term responses to the social and environmental consequences of the climate crisis. These responses need to be inclusive of the needs of all young people and their teachers. In this event, we launch the findings of the 2021 British Educational Research Association Research Commission: a Manifesto for Education for Environmental Sustainability. The manifesto has been co-created by young people and teachers from England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales and illustrated by artist Maisy Summer.
