A shared vision for education in Cumbria. Framing this scoping report is an ambition that every child has a world class holistic educational experience in their local setting, which enables them to contribute to society as resilient, confident, and tolerant global citizens. The scoping report focuses on the provision of place-based learning about the environment and sustainability in Cumbrian schools. Place based learning includes learning about the local environment and wider Cumbrian landscape, issues of sustainability, climate change and biodiversity as well as experiences that build appreciation for nature and the environment.
