Sustainability Strand
Thursday & Friday at the Festival

The Festival of Education is delighted to host its first ever Sustainability stand at this years Festival. It represents a partnership between Wellington College, SEEd and WWF UK – all experts in the filed of education for sustainability and environmental education. They have designed a programme based on the key success areas that researchers at Kings College London have found. The areas are Making Curriculum work for Sustainability, Students i/n Action, Lessons from Nature, Whole School Approach to Sustainability, and Imagining Hopeful Futures. There are over 30 sessions (with some outdoors!) including DfE talking about their new Sustainability and Climate Change Strategy, WWF showcasing their climate work, Anna Pons from the OECD and a keynote from Peter Duncan, actor, director, writer and ex Chief Scout. You may remember him from Blue Peter days? The sessions are all presented by practitioners and experts in their field with real, practical take home ideas and resources. If you have never know where to start with sustainability this is the stream for you and now is the time! Come and join us in the Sustainability Pavilion or visit the Sustainability Summer Fete Atrium.
