  • Pupil/student voice
  • Transitions (moving from primary to secondary or secondary to university/college/work)
  • Saving schools money through sustainability
  • Green jobs
  • Designing action learning projects for sustainability
  • Having a say in your sustainability curriculum

  • Competencies for students e.g. responding to change, futures thinking, systems thinking
