Your sustainability insights needed

Dear ASCers,

I’ve been invited to participate in a one day forum to discuss the future shape and contribution of learning and education to sustainability in NSW.

This offers an opportunity for me to send in wise words drawn from the collective minds of ASC.

Each invitee has been asked to send in something on their vision or a possible future framework for circulation to all participants before the meeting. They want a paragraph about, “…your hopes/ expectations for the future for sustainability education in NSW and/or what you would like to discuss at the forum in working towards a framework for the future.”

My vision is rather narrowly focussed at the moment so I’m seeking views from your vantage points. I invite you to send me a few words which will form the paragraph I send in. This is your chance to have a remote controlled contribution to a planning session.

Further information:

The Forum will take the first steps in a process over several months which will seek to:

1. Develop an agreed vision and key principles for learning for sustainability in NSW for the next decade

2. Develop a framework to support this vision and a process for implementing it.
