Education for Environmental Sustainability: Policy briefing

Following their first set of workshops with over 100 teachers, teacher educators and young people, the team behind BERA’s latest research commission are delighted to share a summary of findings in this policy brief. 

In brief, policy-makers are called on to:

  • Initiate a review of the secondary curriculum with teacher and student involvement.
  • Hold schools to account for sustainability through existing frameworks and standards.
  • Create an external accredited award scheme to value individual and collective efforts and environmental leadership.
  • Enlist the endorsement of respected public figures to promote education for environmental sustainability.
