Education for Sustainability Project

What You'll Do: 

You will work with the King's sustainability team and student volunteers to understand the barriers in place to embedding Education for Sustainability (EfS) into the curriculum at King's and develop an Efs strategy which responds and identifies solutions to overcome these barriers.

 

You will receive Community Organising training - which will empower and enable you to deliver 121 conversations with academics across King's. In these 121s, you will better understand what barriers academics face to embedding EfS within the curriculum. 

 

You will help us develop the timeline and goals of this project - which will be running across the 22-23 academic year. 

 

One you have completed you 121s with academics, you will help us to develop an EfS strategy for King's and collate resources which will provide support to academics when practiclly builsing EfS into the curriculum - shaping these resources off the back of the barriers expressed in the 121s.
