Pupils draft their own climate bill as anxiety grows over lack of guidance for schools

“Dr d’Reen Struthers, lecturer at the Institute of Education at University College London is campaigning for new thinking about the ethos in schools. “It means rethinking our content-heavy curriculum of information pupils need to regurgitate, and instead helping them learn how to question the insidious agendas that are all about money being made, which have led to this ecological crisis.”

“We don’t just want future ecologists to understand sustainability. We want bankers, builders and everyone else to consider it in everything they do.”

Keep questioning! Here are some of my favourite questions from Daniel Christian Wahl’s book, Designing Regenerative Cultures

What kind of world do we want to leave for our children and our children’s children?

Why do we allow an economic system that no longer serves the long term survival of our species or the wellbeing of our communities to dictate the way we do business and relate to each other?

Is the proposed solution likely to lead to an evolutionary dead-end or does it create conditions conducive to life?

How do we effectively encourage learning and experimentation?
