Event description

Description


Join us for a networking evening to mark the launch of two new reports from Melissa Glackin, Heather King, Kate Greer and Rachel Cook (King's College London) on the current state of environmental education in secondary schools in England. The findings of the research raise questions about the place in current formal secondary schooling for environmental-related learning, how it could be championed more broadly and what the curriculum could, and should, look like.

The event will take place in the impressive Conservatory room at King’s, Waterloo Campus.

We will be joined by Bill Scott, recently retired Professor of Education at the University of Bath where he was head of the Education and Sustainability research programme. Bill is also Chair of Trustees of the UK's National Association for Environmental Education (NAEE)


The evening will include:

  • A summary and discussion on the report's key findings
  • Q&A with the authors
  • The chance to explore how we might make the case for better environmental-related education, and share experiences of working in/with secondary schools
  • Launch of the next LEEF reading group book, and
  • Network with colleagues from schools, environmental education organisations (LEEFers) and academia.

Complimentary nibbles and refreshments will be provided.

Copies of the report will be available at the launch. By registering, attendees will also receive a free chapter from 'The World We'll Leave Behind: Grasping the Sustainability Challenge' by William Scott and Paul Vare, first published in 2018 by Greenleaf Publishing/Routledge.

About the report

Understanding Environmental Education in Secondary Schools in England (Reports 1 & 2), by Melissa Glackin, Heather King, Kate Greer and Rachel Cook (King’s College London), explores the current state of environmental education provision across secondary schools in England from the perspectives of: national and local policy; experienced teachers, subject association and learned society staff; and those involved more widely in the environmental education sector.

The research received a British Academy/ Leverhulme Research Grant.

The reports can be downloaded here.
