Learning for Sustainability
The Learning for Sustainability (LfS) site began in 1998, and has been operating under its current name since 2006! It provides a reference guide to on-line resources for those working to support social learning and constructive action. The material referenced here can be used, or adapted for use, in any number of fields.
It operates as a portal – highlighting the wide range of social skills and processes that are needed to support constructive learning-based collaboration. The site has just been redeveloped to improve both content and structure. Occasional updates are sent out to the more than 1700 site subscribers as new resources and pages are added. If you are not already on the list feel free to join up here:
