Making Green Come True at Fuel Poverty, Housing and Energy Justice

December 5, 2020 from 1pm to 4:30pm
FPA are planning a half day online conference entitled "Making Green Come True".

The Big Climate Teach In at Climate Focused Education

July 4, 2020 from 10am to 4pm
This could be the biggest climate education conference ever. It aims to go a short distance towards bridging the current education crisis and long-term gap in the teaching of climate change. In this unprecedented time, where many young people all over the world lack access to climate education. Teachers and students have worked in challenging circumstances to rapidly improvise the use of online learning. As a response to this educational deficit, and utlising the fact educators and learners are…See More

Sustainable Hackney Education for Sustainability (EfS) Network – A Personal Account of Aspirations and Hopes for a Post-Covid Sustainable Education System in Hackney.

Difficulties of home schooling during the Covid 19 lockdown have been well publicised, as has the recognition of the professionalism and hard work effected by teachers. Hopefully too, there will have dawned a realisation among parents and others that our education system has become mechanistic and soul-less.Over these months when streets and air-lanes have been more tranquil, people of all ages and persuasions have experienced a raised awareness of the natural world.  Many, who like myself,…See More

WELCOME BACK TO A NEW, SUSTAINABLE, ECO FRIENDLY YEAR - Are You Ready To Take On Eco-Schools?

THE CLIMATE CRISISWe begin the new school year in the same state of political confusion in which we finished the last one, with Brexit still dragging endlessly on.   Were we to be cynical, we might feel either that some of our politicians are deliberately procrastinating or are happy to let the impasse continue, thus permitting the government the reason to avoid facing up to the biggest crisis of all – the Climate Emergency. However, their Climate Complacency won’t last long.  Many actions and…See More
