Outreach and Widening Participation
Education for Sustainable Development
“By 2030, ensure that all learners acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including, among others, through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship and appreciation of cultural diversity and of culture’s contribution to sustainable development.” (SDG Target 4.7)
At Global Sustainable Development, we recognise the value of Education for Sustainable Development as a key promoter of change. We are highly committed to engaging a wide and diverse audience and advocate for the inclusion of sustainable development in the teaching curriculum to promote global citizenship among children of all ages. We are therefore excited to work with schools and teachers across the country to increase exposure and access to the study of global sustainable development.

What we offer
We offer schools and teachers a range of options, from taster lectures and seminars to simulations and games, in order to stimulate students to discover and engage with global sustainable development. All these activities are enjoyable and accessible and can be tailored to your specification. Typically, we offer Outreach programmes to Year 9 - Year 13 students. Examples of sessions include:
- The Global Food System - an interactive simulation game on the global food market and the challenges encountered by small scale farmers
- Overfishing and the Tragedy of the Commons - a simulation game on the problem of common resource management with an application to overfishing
- What is Global Sustainable Development? - an engaging quiz game to familiarise students with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals and the world’s progress towards achieving them.
