Learning for Sustainability hub launched to celebrate #ClimateWeek
Today, we are delighted to launch a brand new Learning for Sustainability hub on our website, bringing together our all our work on global citizenship, sustainable education, outdoor learning, political literacy, climate action and social justice under one roof.
This new hub will showcase the current work that YouthLink Scotland is undertaking on Learning for Sustainability through our national programmes, policy and research. It will also give a home to a huge range of resources that you can use in your youth work practice to explore issues around climate emergency, social action at home, political literacy and UN Sustainable Development Goals. Going forward, we will also highlight good practice from across the youth work sector and will share new training opportunities and events.
Our world has never been more interconnected and interdependent and it is evident that young people are leading the way in tackling some of the world’s biggest social issues. As a youth work sector we know that we have a key role to play in supporting young people to feel equipped and empowered to take action and make a difference for the prosperity of our planet and all the people on it.
Through YouthLink Scotland’s recent climate action policy seminars and climate emergency training programme we received feedback that, as youth workers, you need resources, further training opportunities and examples of good practice to help you support young people to better understand how they can contribute to building a socially just, sustainable and equitable society.
September is global citizenship month and this week is #ClimateWeek, what better time to have a look around our new hub, find some useful resources and start planning your next Learning for Sustainability project with young people today.
If you have any resources that you think the sector would find useful or if you are already undertaking work on this area and would like to share with the youth work sector get in touch with our #IWill National Development Officer, Jenni Snell on Jsnell@youthlinkscotland.org.
