Green Jobs Day of Action 16th March
On Saturday 16th March young people from across the country will be gathering with their friends and peers to ask our MPs to help make Green Jobs accessible to young people across the UK.
We’re calling on MPs to ensure the Government listens to the Climate Change Committee’s advice to include an ambitious de-carbonisation target in the Energy Bill. It’s crucial that we get this target to the Bill and give the green light to green industries to invest in Green Jobs. We are on the brink of laying some fundamental foundations to our clean, fair future. Come join us to make this happen.
LSIS London Region Event – Sustainability and Employability
How can we integrate Sustainable Development in the tertiary sector?
A workshop to identify the current state of play in embedding education for sustainable development (ESD) across the sector. We will look at the main obstacles and key policy changes needed.
We are fast approaching the end of the UN Decade for ESD (2015). Progress has been painfully slow. A ‘Skills for Sustainability’ consultation document from the Green Economy Council is due to be published before Easter. But will it deliver what the tertiary sector needs?
This event will bring together people from across Adult and Community, Work Based Learning, FE, and HE to:
– Identify the obstacles that prevent the education sector embedding ESD
– Review current proposals from government and within the sector
– Compare current practice across the London Region
– Identify the main changes needed to promote ESD across all parts of the sector
This will be a practical day designed to influence organisations within education and other policy makers. There will be lots of time to contribute in small group discussions and full sessions. Please diary this event and we will send out further programme details shortly.
