90% of primary schoolteachers want sustainability issues in their lessons, however 76% say they don’t have the resources they need
The vision for our Sustainable Learning website is to empower teachers to deliver engaging lessons on sustainability that support the curriculum.
The intention is to empower educators to be able to teach sustainability as part of a lesson on any subject, not just science or geography where it has typically sat in the past.
Rather than deliver a single lesson on climate change and then move on, this programme aims to weave the narrative of greener living into many different possible lessons. Our ethos is to make sustainability core to children’s learning, not a subject that sits by itself.
Sustainable Learning connects teachers with 250 high-quality curriculum resources, organisations and experts that support their learning in school, and a useful events calendar. The wide range of creative lessons encourages diversification of lessons, teaching subjects in different ways, as well as supporting time-poor teachers with engaging and inspiring resources. All completely free of charge!
"Sustainable Hive are amazing! They have been instrumental in our success at embedding sustainability across the school. Their continued support, encouragement and local networks have been invaluable. The website is fantastic and we have used the brilliant FREE resources for whole school campaigns, teaching ideas and for our Green Team meetings."
