A radical pedagogical model for HEIs
Transformation of our perspectives and way of thinking


Educational institutions need new ways to promote and embed sustainability and ecological thinking, not just through recycling or retrofitting buildings but a radical pedagogical rethink about how we embed ecological thinking into our teaching and learning practices. How do we take ownership of our campus green spaces? How do we use our grounds to promote outdoor learning? How do we redesign current programmes to embed green philosophies and ecological thinking? What new pedagogical methods and frameworks must we anticipate in order to meet future needs and challenges? How do we benchmark different disciplinary approaches and methodologies within a GreenHaus ethics and commitments?
