Sustainability is a frequently used but often misunderstood term; it is much more than environmental management. Balancing the needs of people, staff, students with those of the planet and its ability to support and nurture humankind, with the need to be economically viable should be the goal. Achieving this balance will sustain a school and its pupils into the next generation. Many major companies already have Board level appointees responsible for sustainability, its fundamental principles will be the way many organisations of the future will be run. Your students will become part of these organisations.
In addition, today’s younger generation are arguably the most connected and environmentally aware in history. They will hold our generation to account once custodial responsibility of our planet is handed to them, they will judge us on what we did when we were in charge, and what we left them with. Sustainability will undoubtedly offer this generation exciting and fulfilling careers in the years to come. Building these principles in to the curriculum will prepare the leaders of tomorrow for a truly sustainable future.
In this session we will explore some of these issues, and how both schools and students can benefit from sustainability.
