Sustainability in the spotlight: Bridging the reality gap
08 December 2022

On 23rd November 2022, Stephen Scoffham, Tony Eaude and Linda Whitworth from Humanities 20:20 presented online on Sustainability to the Teacher Educator and Mentoring Zone of NASBTT (National Association of School-Based Teacher Trainers). This session emphasised the importance of the Humanities in primary schools in leading on complex but vital contemporary issues. Teachers, parents and pupils are concerned about immediate issues such as renewable energy and rising energy prices. COP27 has re-affirmed the current problems and the need for imaginative and effective responses. Sustainability has relevance in, and connections with every subject, because it requires new imaginative ways of thinking and being in the world. Working through different subjects’ substantive content and skills, especially in the humanities-based subjects, pupils can be empowered to understand the different types of question and answer which emerge from considering how everyone can help to make the planet more sustainable. The powerpoint can be made available by contacting We hope to have a recording available soon.
