Lifelong Learning for Sustainable Futures
This page contains resources to support my presentation to the Education Policy Support for Children’s Education in the Highland Plateau of China Conference July 18-20th, 2021. I am grateful to the conference organisers for the opportunity to share my ideas on the ways in which I believe policy for education and lifelong learning needs to evolve to support distant sustainable futures for individuals, communities, societies and the planet.
PRESENTATION - POWERPOINT SLIDES
NARRATIVE TO ACCOMPANY SLIDES
During October-November 2021, Lifewide Education is facilitating an inquiry into how we might create our own sustainable future.
Participants will undertake to identify one or more SDG’s and interpret them in the context of their own life. Over 4 weeks we will encourage participants to change some aspects of their behaviour and create a narrative or story about their own process of learning for a more sustainable future.
