Evidence for Sustainability in Education

Wednesday, 26 March 2014 - 9:00am to 4:30pm
Baden Powell House

The time is now for a National Call for Evidence of Sustainability in Education.

With elections around the corner, more funding bodies asking for evidence of impact for their grants, and schools and other education institutions being required to show evidence of improvement, you are invited to join us and many others on Wednesday 26th March 2014 for this one-of-a-kind event. This will be the most comprehensive gathering of its kind with 20 high profile speakers and a huge collection of evidence reports, where you will also have the chance to contribute to the database of evidence and the collective story we all have to tell about ESD.

We will explore evidence of practice, impact and needs with a full and wide-ranging group of experts and practitioners. If you need the evidence to make your case, or need to find approaches that really work – this day is for you.

We will collate an evidence database for you and your work, looking at evidence from early years through school, further education and into professional life. Bring your own stories, your case studies and your evidence: we want to start telling the story of ESD in the UK with your help, and we want to learn about and share the newest ideas about measuring evidence and best practice.

“I don’t think that there is anyone who is more aware of the reality of the current context in which learning for sustainability is now struggling to maintain its hard won position in the day-to-day life of schools across England [than SEEd].” Ben Hren, Waste Watch
