Is the education that we are providing adequate to face the challenges that we are facing today? asked Professor Stephen Sterling (Professor of Sustainability Education at the Centre for Sustainable Futures, Plymouth University) in his keynote speech at the 21st anniversary celebratory conference of the EfS programme at London South Bank University (LSBU) held at LSBU on 13 January 2017.

 

Titled ‘Celebrating 21 Years of EfS: Moving forward in an age of global uncertainty’, the event brought together academics, students, alumni and practitioners, who collectively reflected on the impact of EfS and looked forward to future developments in this important field of education.

 

The programme featured a keynote, talks, panel discussions, workshops, stories from current students and alumni of the course, a poster exhibition and a celebratory reception.

 

Welcome and introduction

big-efsconf-02-intro

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome

 

Welcoming the participants, Professor Patrick Bailey (Deputy Vice Chancellor LSBU) highlighted that sustainability is so complex that no single area of expertise can solve the wicked problems associated with it, emphasising the need for an interdisciplinary approach.

 

He said that it is social justice that needs to be at the heart of sustainability, so that everything else would follow, even environmental protection.

 

He revealed that he doesn’t believe in climate change because it is not a religion and that, like himself, we all should become climate change critics. He said that there is 98% certainty that climate change is happening and 95% certainty that it is human-driven and warned that the consequences of not taking this clear evidence into account would be very serious.

 

He congratulated the outgoing course director, Professor Ros Wade, who had been at the helm of the course for the last 21 years from the very beginning.

 

Introduction

 

Dr Jaya Gajparia, the new director of the EfS programme, gave an overview of the course.

 

She said that the EfS course, which offers postgraduate courses from Continued Professional Development (CPD) to Masters level with a range of flexible study modes, including distance learning, spans the theory and practice of EfS, enabling students to explore and expand the role that EfS can play in educational, social, political and economic change.

 

She also said that the course, which is designed for anyone interested in paving the way for a more sustainable world by way of understanding, educating or promoting sustainability, comprises six modules, with case studies and readings from a range of global regions; they are designed to be applicable to any type of educational or country context.

 

Moreover, she talked about the roots of the course, which lie the 1992 UN Earth Summit in Rio, Brazil, where a commitment was made to integrate environmental and development concerns in the emerging concept of sustainability while emphasising the importance of education’s role in building a sustainable world. In response to this, she said, a group of development and environmental organisations – with the financial contributions from WWF-UK, Oxfam and the EU – got together with LSBU and the eventual result was this EfS programme.

 

Finally, she observed that, over the last 21 years, the world’s first ever Masters programme of this kind has continued to grow steadily as a dynamic interface between theory and practice in EfS, with students and alumni from all continents – except Antarctica!

 

Panel discussion

big-efsconf-03-panel

 

The panels discussion was on ‘Reflections on the past, planning for the future.’

 

The panel, chaired by Professor Stephen Sterling (Plymouth University), comprised Professor Ros Wade (LSBU), Dr Paul Vare (University of Gloucestershire), Betty Okot (Alumni from Uganda/ Keele University), Safia Minney (People Tree) and Professor Craig Barker (LSBU). The panellists answered the chair’s questions and then, in the end, questions from the audience.

 

Professor Ros Wade, outgoing course director, observed that this EfS course has been a collaboration from the very beginning – between environmental and development educators, between academia and NGOs and so on.

 

She said that EfS not being a fixed discipline or field, the course has been developed in line with solving real world problems, based mainly on practice, enabling students to explore and expand the role of EfS in their own personal and professional journeys.

 

To her, transformatory aspect is key to the course although which brings in tensions, such as allowing for transformation, emergence, openness and originality vs. learning outcomes.

 

She revealed that it was people who made the course a resounding success, especially the students.

 

She also mentioned Journeys around Education for Sustainability, the book that the course published in 2008 from the work of the course participants and directors.

 

Betty Okot (Keele University), an alumna from Uganda, talked about how the EfS course made her a confident agent of change, elaborating on her work in making positive change in community policing in Uganda.

 

Dr Paul Vare (University of Gloucestershire) emphasised that the economic goal is too narrow for education and that critical thinking should play a key role of education.

 

Safia Minney (founder of People Tree) suggested that more pressure should be exerted on governments and corporations to battle modern slavery and that the movie ‘True Cost’ should be shown to teachers.

 

Professor Craig Barker (Dean, School of Law and Social Sciences, LSBU) said that many countries takes responsibility seriously but international law is constrained by political will.

 

Course impact | Stories from students and alumni

The session on the impact of the course was chaired by Dr Glenn Strachan (LSBU), who himself was a student on the course and then a co-director.

 

Students and alumni from Lesotho, Rwanda, UK and Cameroon (on Skype) shared their stories. The course has helped them in different ways, including:

  • Enhancing thinking and practice
  • To become what one wanted to be (now this student wants help others to become what they want to be)
  • To look deeply into the alternatives to the mainstream
  • To effect personal change for good in their own life and space
  • To become confident and effective agents of change

James Whittingham (Sustainability Manager at LSBU) outlined the university’s 3C-framework that drives sustainability change by addressing both hearts and minds of the LSBU community; the framework comprises campus, curriculum and community.

 

Students’ posters were on display during the lunch break.

 

Workshops

A parallel session comprised two workshops and an exhibition:

  • Poppy Flint (This is Rubbish) on the anti-food waste edible educational programme
  • Alia Al Zougbi (HEC Global Learning Centre) on a global learning approach to teaching about refugees
  • Whole Earth Exhibition at LSBU (led by Rebecca Drahota, Annie Nilisson and Malin Lundberg)

 

‘Whole Earth?’ exhibition, launched in autumn 2015 at the Eden Project, is hosted by universities and schools in the UK and Scandinavia. It is a partnership between Hard Rain Project, the National Union of Students (NUS) and the Environmental the Association of Universities and Colleges (EAUC).

Two representatives from the UK Commonwealth Scholarship Commission, which funds the African Scholarship programme of the course, outlined its contribution to sustainable development and empowerment through its scholarship scheme.

 

The RCE movement and Education for Sustainability (EfS)

big-efsconf-08-rce

 

Professor Ros Wade (Chair, London Regional Centre of Expertise RCE in Education for Sustainable Development ESD) revealed how the existence of the course at LSBU was instrumental in the development of LSBU as the host of the RCE London, which is part of the UN University’s global RCE network. She drew attention to the European RCE meeting 2016 that RCE London and LSBU hosted in June last year.

 

Keynote | Future challenges for EfS

big-efsconf-09-keynote

 

What’s wrong with education today? Is the education that we are providing adequate to face the challenges that we are facing today? asked Professor Stephen Sterling, delivering the keynote on the future challenges for EfS.

 

Today, conventional knowledge is not adequate, he observed, emphasising that extraordinary times require extraordinary responses. He viewed the birth of this course as an example of such an extraordinary response from environmental and development education communities.

 

Good education should enable us to question assumptions, including our own, as this course encourages its students to do so, he said.

 

Future challenges for EfS are numerous, he said, taking tension as an example, between fragmentation and integration. Other challenges that he had mentioned include staying within fixed boundaries, issues related to labels and identities and obtaining better co-evaluation with society.

 

Although much more needs to be done, what EfS/ ESD (Education for Sustainable Development) has achieved in the last couple of decades is phenomenal, he observed. For instance, he said, in the 1990s EfS/ ESD was almost non-existent but today it enjoys global influence at the UN level.

The day ended with a celebratory reception.

Plymouth Conference | Education for Sustainability in Higher Education: Achievements and Prospects

Plymouth-ESD-conf

A conference titled ‘Education for Sustainability in Higher Education: Achievements and Prospects,’ will be held at Plymouth University on 8 January 2015. 

Hosted by the university’s Pedagogic Research Institute and Observatory (PedRIO) and the Centre for Sustainable Futures (CSF), this conference will signify three decadal milestones, the end of the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) and the tenth anniversaries of HEFCE’s influential policy document Sustainable Development in Higher Education and Plymouth’s CSF.

The conference will showcase and celebrate achievements in sustainability-related teaching and learning, Continuing Professional Development (CPD), pedagogic research, resource development, hybrid learning space design, and whole institutional change.

It will explore three themes:

  • ESD Pedagogy: Criticality, Creativity and Collaboration
  • Innovative Learning Spaces for sustainability education
  • Towards the Sustainable University

In addition to research papers and posters, the day’s programme will feature a series of roundtable discussions. This flexible format will encourage delegates to move between tables, choosing topics of their preference, and will also foster a high level of interactivity and discussion, providing useful feedback to presenters and facilitating networking.

The morning session will begin with a Welcome and Introduction by Professor Ray Playford (Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Plymouth University). This session will comprise:

  • Keynote 1: Dr Jane Davidson (Institute of Sustainable Practice, Innovation and Resource Effectiveness INSPIRE, University of Wales, Trinity St. David) | Life, the Universe and Everything – how should universities educate for a constrained future?
  • Plymouth Plaza – Roundtable Paper Presentations
  • Three Paper Sessions in parallel on ESD Pedagogy, Innovative Learning Spaces for ESD, and Towards the Sustainable University

The afternoon session, following Lunch and Poster Presentations, will comprise:

  • Three Paper Sessions in parallel on ESD Pedagogy, Mixed themes, and Towards the Sustainable University
  • ESD in Practice Plaza – Roundtable Paper Presentations
  • Three Paper Sessions in parallel, one on ESD Pedagogy and two on Towards the Sustainable University
  • Guest Speech: Jamie Agombar (Head of Sustainability, National Union of Students NUS) | NUS/Higher Education Academy research on student attitudes to sustainable development
  • Keynote 2: Professor Stephen Sterling (CSF, Plymouth University) | So far, so good…. and so what? ESD and the next decade

The day before, a pre-conference event will take place at National Marine Aquarium, Plymouth at 5.30pm. At this informal networking evening Tim Mac Macartney (writer, author, and founder of Embercombe) will give a presentation on ‘A Wind Blowing – experiments in learning well’.

Higher Education Academy (HEA) awards National Teaching Fellowship to a pioneer in Sustainability Education

???????????????????????The Higher Education Academy (HEA) awarded in June 2014 a National Teaching Fellowship (NTF) to Professor Stephen Sterling in recognition of his pioneering efforts to advance sustainability education. He is one of the 55 recipients of this prestigious award for excellence in higher education teaching and support for learning, selected from over 180 nominations submitted by higher education institutions across England, Northern Ireland and Wales.

 

Professor Sterling is Professor of Sustainability Education (Centre for Sustainable Futures CSF) and Head of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) at Plymouth University. His research interests lie in the interrelationships between ecological thinking, systemic change, and learning at individual and institutional scales to help meet the challenge of accelerating the educational response to the sustainability agenda.

 

His varied career has included roles as teacher, deputy director of a national educational body, consultant (particularly to WWF-UK), freelance academic, academic tutor at London South Bank University (LSBU), and Professor at Plymouth University. Among his credits are co-founding/writing the first masters course in the UK on education for sustainability (at LSBU), co-editing the first book published anywhere on this field, writing/leading on another three key books in the area, producing the HEA-commissioned Future Fit Framework that has inspired academics and universities to embrace sustainability in their teaching, and leading a WWF project on systems thinking, namely ‘Linking Thinking – new perspectives on thinking and learning for sustainability’. He has also played a critical role in Plymouth’s commitment to and success in sustainability for many years.

 

The HEA NTF scheme is funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE), the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales (HEFCW) and the Department for Employment and Learning in Northern Ireland. It is open to staff whose teaching or support roles enhance the student learning experience at institutions in England, Northern Ireland and Wales.
