About Us



SWLfSC [the Coalition] is a Community Interest Company that is a network of over 130 organisations and individuals across the South West of England. Coalition members share expertise in sustainable development, education and learning, and understand that learning, viewed broadly, is crucial to the development of a sustainable South West.

The Coalition, which was established in 2004 and has grown through the voluntary efforts of members and supportive institutions, exists to champion education for sustainable development [ESD] in the region. The glue that binds SWLfSC together is, firstly, a shared conviction that sustainable development is a priority, and that learning is the key to this; and, secondly, commonly-held values around the importance of education, the need to promote systems thinking and active citizenship, and the central importance of co-operation across interests and communities.

Where? Abbeywood Community School, New Road, Stoke Gifford, Bristol. BS34 8SF

All welcome!

This seminar will feature a discussion of the  recommendations by the National Curriculum Review Expert Panel. We have invited a guest speaker from the Department of Education (to be confirmed) to guide our discussion. Abbeywood School has also kindly offered to supply lunch so we do need a fairly accurate idea of numbers. If you expect to attend, please inform Elsa Lee at: swlfsc@gmail.com by Friday 16th March.
