I recently spent a very stimulating few hours with primary school headteachers from a London Borough – talking with them about sustainable schools during a couple of days devoted to this theme. Although there were a few Heads from the Borough not there, it was a pretty good turn out.
Only 25% of those there said that they'd heard of the sustainable school doorways, and none had come across the idea of ESD – or the Unesco Decade. What bliss, part of me thought. I do need to say, however, that some of the work being done by those who were aware of the idea of sustainable schools was commendable.
