Vision 2030+ report on Learning for Sustainability launched

Vision 2030+, the final report of the Learning for Sustainability National Implementation Group, has been launched by Scottish Ministers, and underlines the importance of Learning for Sustainability as an entitlement for all learners.

It notes progress made by Scottish schools and also sets out a vision for Learning for Sustainability through to 2030 - the target date for realising the Sustainable Development Goals.

Shirley-Anne Somerville MSP, Minister for Further Education, Higher Education and Science said: 

"Curriculum for Excellence aims to ensure that all children and young people in Scotland develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they will need if they are to flourish in life, learning and work.

As part of this, Scottish Government supports every learner’s entitlement to Learning for Sustainability... Learning for Sustainability is about learning for a better world – equipping our young people with the skills, values and attributes they need for life and work in a sustainable and fair Scotland and a sustainable and fair world.

It involves schools weaving together sustainable development education, global citizenship, international education, outdoor learning and children’s rights into a coherent whole school approach that covers curriculum, culture, community and campus."
