  • Print

Monday 31 May | 09.00 – 17.00 | €Free | Tipperary Institute, Thurles, Co Tipperary | Full Schedule (pdf)

What are the models of education we need to meet the challenges of today?
How do we transform our education system to help us move towards a sustainable Ireland?
How can we ensure that learners and educators are equipped to deal with future shocks?

This conference brings educators, learners, state and civil society organisations together to…

  • Challenge the dominant educational paradigm
  • Explore the education needed for developing resilience and sustainability
  • Highlight and promote innovative and successful approaches to learning

The outcome from the day will be a draft declaration on sustainable education that the delegates can sign up to. This declaration will then be used to stimulate conversation, debate and ideas for change in the curriculum and the way education is delivered. It is proposed that a ‘guardian group’ be established to develop this project and to pursue its implementation.
