Teaching Citizenship - Sustainability in the classroom

Key stage 3 (ages 11-14) • Sustainability • Pedagogy

In this free article, from the Teaching Citizenship journal, written by ACT Ambassador, Sera Shortland, the role of sustainability within the citizenship classroom is considered as a new bill makes its way through the House of Lords. Proposed by the Right Honourable Sir Jim Knight, the Education (Environment and Sustainable Citizenship) Bill seeks to place learning about climate change and sustainability within the Citizenship programme of study.

Inspired by the Bill, ACT Ambassadors have written a new series of lessons to show how teachers could frame this learning and ensure that core citizenship knowledge and concepts are at the heart of lesson planning.
