Led by humanities specialist, Andy Brumby, this one-day course will explore the three big ideas which interlock when thinking about sustainability:
* Social well-being – happy and healthy families and communities.
* Economic well-being – having the means to access basic needs such as shelter, food, heating, medical care and education.
* Environmental well-being – healthy eco-systems and diverse flora and fauna.
During the day delegates will consider the implications of these ‘three pillars’ for the geography curriculum, reflecting on how each of them can be woven into geography teaching and learning in the classroom.
