About Greenspace Education

The need for place-based learning is imperative for students to connect their experience to a relevant context and boost intrinsic motivation to learn. In order to shape and ensure a sustainable future, we need individuals to adopt particular values and attitudes and develop particular skills and knowledge.

Education for Sustainable Development is not only about examining key issues such as consumption, poverty, pollution and climate change; but learning to apply a specific set of skills to solving problems within these issues. These skills include, but are not limited to; observation, collaborative ideation and decision-making, critical-thinking and reflective practices.

Here at Green Space Education, I include place-based learning and sustainable development themes in all resources and training.

How can we work together?

  • Place-based STEAM programmes and resources

Green Space Education was created out of a need to embed sustainable thinking into the curriculum, promote learner-centred methodologies and encourage robust, innovative and autonomous learners who are future-ready. We want to augment the gaps in the current system and be a catalyst for change for learners and educators.
