On Saturday 13th Feb 2016 we held a different sort of event for Independent Thinking. It wasn’t a day course, an INSET session or a conference but a not-for-profit gathering of interested teachers and Associates. We were there, Barnsley to be precise, because we all felt we needed to do something about that point where education and environmental issues met.
When we say ‘we’ we mean you as well, all of us.
And when we say, ‘environmental issues’, we mean catastrophic, ‘this changes everything’, end of the world as we know it environmental issues.
Governments around the world are increasingly fixated simply on data in schools. Meanwhile, really important things like the damage we are doing to our planet only get worse.
But schools can do something about – and many of the children in them certainly do want to play their part.
