About the Event
Sustainability is a key concept taught within schools across the world, but are we teaching it properly and effectively? The curriculum and exam specifications within geography present an outdated, narrow, and negative view of what sustainability is and how we can achieve it.
Partnered with Camps International, a social enterprise and sustainable travel company, the session will explore what we really mean by sustainability in 2022, what it looks like for our students and how we develop our ability to teach it.
