In March 2014, I was given the honour of being one of the first cohort of LEEF fellows. LEEF is London Environmental Educators Forum, and their aim is to promote the highest possible standards of professional practice in Environmental Education in London. Here are a copy of my LEEF fellowship presentation, delivered on the evening of the awards, and also another workshop I delivered for LEEF in February in the lovely painted hall in Brockwell Park. The workshop was slightly rashly entitled ‘how to manufacture a miracle’, meaning that the speed of social change necessary to mitigate climate change and steer us to a sustainable future has to be miraculous to be effective. This workshop was about different theories of change, and encouraged participants to examine and explore the theories of change behind their work. The materials are available on my Facebook page as a quicktime movie, click the image to access them.
Recent papers submitted to conferences and fora:
1. In early September 2012 we presented to the 7th International Conference on the Social and Moral fabric of Schooling at Seattle Pacific University. Please find the paper below, along with an image of Seattle harbour.
2. In June 2012 we presented at the CCCI TEESnet conference, at London South Bank University, on ‘core competencies for educators’. We argue that reflexivity, inner knowing and stillness are actually core competencies for educators bringing Sustainability and global learning into state education classrooms.
