Greener Living Sustainability CEF

Course description

Greener Living Sustainability 


The course examines eight aspects of our lives through the lens of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, with biodiversity and climate change as cross cutting issues. These eight topics are water, energy, transport, food, biodiversity, waste, consumerism, and community. 


Under each topic, participants can explore a range of simple actions they can take in their day to day lives to live a healthy more sustainable life. 


The Course is designed to complement the work of other programmes such as the Green Schools, Heritage in Schools, Health Promotion and Active Schools."


This course will be facilitated by Matt Jones
