Developing the Sustainable School

22 July 2010
Bill Scott just completed a piece of research for the South West Learning for Sustainability Coalition. The report looks at the idea of the sustainable school in terms of a contribution to sustainable development, and uses Daly and Meadows' capitals theory to do this.  It builds on previous work about the stages that a sustainable school might go through in its development, and on several research studies over the past 10 years. The result is three sets of descriptors that might help a school’s thinking about what it wants to do next as it works towards a greater contribution towards sustainability.
