‘Timely’, ‘much needed’ and ‘vital’ are just a few words applied to this hugely important conference focused on sustainability and education.

A team of highly respected and experienced practitioners in the field, including Professor Paul Clarke, Juliet Robertson, Will Ryan and Dr David Dixon will challenge your thinking and practice whilst sharing practical and achievable examples of the ways in which schools can not only help save the planet today but also foster young people who will make a positive, sustainable impact in the future too. 

This unique one-day conference from Independent Thinking and IAPS, chaired by our very own Dave Harris, will give you the information and techniques to start making the immediate changes needed to bring sustainability, the environment and saving the world into each and every classroom and across the whole curriculum.

Schools, Sustainability and Darwin’s Tangled Bank
As an inner-city London primary head teacher, David was a pioneer in helping
the world of education live up to its responsibility and duty to enhance and care
for the larger world beyond school. Through his work, he shows how issues of
sustainability are not bolt-on extras but can be built into the curriculum in a
joined-up, multidisciplinary way.
