We need all children to be ready for their future – and able to shape it. Our education system requires an upgrade so it can equip tomorrow’s adults to thrive in a changing world.
Our Shared World supports SDG4.7 which states that by 2030 we ‘ensure all learners acquire knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including among others through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship, and appreciation of cultural diversity and of culture’s contribution to sustainable development’
The Department for Education has launched its Sustainability and Climate Change Strategy which includes a new natural History GCSE.
After a period of consultation on the draft Strategy, co-chairs Ann Finlayson, Andrea Bullivant and Elena Lengthorn have produced a response on behalf of the Our Shared World coalition.
The long awaited Our Shared World Research and Evidence report is now published and available to downoad for free.
The report gathers evidence of the extent to which the themes of Sustainable Development Goal Target 4.7 are being engaged with within schools in England, examining how they are being delivered, areas of success, identifiable gaps, and what the priorities for policymakers should be in the future.
