Learning for Sustainability


What is Learning for Sustainability?  

Learning for Sustainability (LfS) is an approach to life and learning which enables learners, educators, schools and their wider communities to build a socially-just, sustainable and equitable society. As an umbrella term LfS weaves together global citizenship, sustainable development education and outdoor learning to create coherent, rewarding and transformative learning experiences that support young people’s development and understanding of the world around them.  

LfS is an entitlement for all learners within the Curriculum for Excellence and both the UN Sustainable Development Goals & UNCRC are central to Scotland’s national vision.
