A TCV Scotland partnership project has recently won an Outstanding Flagship Project Award at the 9th Global Regional Centres of Expertise on ESD Conference, held in Okayama, Japan. The project involved 18 participants from government agencies, Non-governmental organisations, and communities in Scotland working to engage people with the environment. Over the course of the 6 month project the participants were supported to develop practical approaches to applying a 'values-based' approach in their work. The programme was designed and delivered by Anthony Morrow and Kerry Riddell of TCV Scotland in partnership with Pam Candea (The Surefoot Effect), Osbert Lancaster (Changemaking) and Morag Watson (Learning for Sustainability Scotland).
The Award judging panel was particularly impressed by the innovative nature of the project and its contribution to pushing forward the field of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). Conference delegates who listened to the presentation on the project were very excited about it and copies of the report are now being distributed to Regional Centres of Expertise in Education for Sustainable Development all over the world.
