More information about the project
Following their first set of workshops with over 100 teachers, teacher educators and young people, the team behind the BERA 2021 Research Commission on Education for Environmental Sustainability have shared findings in a new policy brief. They have also published a guide for secondary schools and communities with the preliminary findings of their research.
The objective of the British Educational Research Association (BERA) commission is to work with teachers and 16-18 year-olds to co-create a manifesto for Education and Environmental Sustainability (EfES) for secondary education in the UK.
