A new report is available from Education Scotland called "Opening Up Great Learning: Learning for sustainability".

This paper examines what great learning for sustainability (LfS) looks like. It demonstrates how meeting national recommendations in this area can enable schools, early learning and childcare settings to achieve great outcomes. The paper also provides a range of Career-long Professional Learning activities to support whole school dialogue and strategic development of learning for sustainability.
