Sustainable development in the UK: exploring education initiatives since Rio

William Scott, Alan Reid, Stephen Gough

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


This paper derives from a contribution we made to the Council for Environmental Education’s submission to the House of Commons Environmental Audit Committee (2002), and reviews educational activities in response to Agenda 21 (Chapter 36 on Promoting Education, Public Awareness and Training). Exemplars relating to policy, programmes and strategy are illustrated, alongside a commentary on their effectiveness and strategic value. We conclude that there is now a priority need for integrated and integrative leadership, both within and across sectors, which synthesises existing knowledge and good practice, and makes them available to ongoing initiatives.
