Description

A shared conference presentation describes two ways of bringing education for sustainable development into education. The first part concentrated on putting science into outdoor learning backed up by a series of mind-mapping activities. The second was about linking schools with their surrounding communities to develop ways of working together. An example from a British school is highlighted but similar projects are occurring elsewhere in Europe and a few other countries.
