Education for Sustainability Conference

Education is essential to increase student awareness of the key sustainability issues but also to empower students to collaboratively work with communities to develop and implement the essential changes that are required to achieve the SDGs.

This collaborative online conference will provide an opportunity to bring together a wide range of Edge Hill University colleagues, including academics and students, with members of local community organisations to develop a sustainable and reciprocal educational approach.
