Thoughts on learning, sustainability and the link between them

Bill Scott

I'm Bill Scott, an emeritus professor of education at the University of Bath.  Until 2010, I was director of the Centre for Research in Education and the Environment [CREE] which was established in 1995 and has become the largest and most active anglophone group of academics interested in the links between education and learning and sustainability.   Academics seem to find it hard to retire completely, and I am no exception, as I am still involved in a range of projects and activities, most particularly in work for Garden Organic and the Soil Association's Food for Life Partnership.  I am a Trustee of the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust, the Forest of Avon Trust, and the South west learning for sustainability coalition, a member of a range of steering and advisory groups in relation to research into outdoor learning, and sustainability in universities, and I am president of the UK's National Association for Environmental Education (NAEE).  I continue to write and review, and am an associate editor of the Taylor & Francis journal, EER.  This blog is my personal commentary of all things to do with learning and sustainability – both viewed very broadly.  Inevitably, the blog betrays my likes and dislikes, and my prejudices and values.   Comment is free and always welcome.
