What is a Sustainable Ethos?                                                  
And how does it support children’s learning, understanding and greater research?
- The ability to be sustained, supported, upheld, or confirmed.
- Environmental Science. The quality of not being harmful to the environment or depleting natural resources, and thereby supporting long-term ecological balance.
Our understanding of sustainability is fundamentally linked to caring for the environment, recycling and using solutions with minimum environmental impact. For our children growing in today’s world the awareness, understanding and practical application of this should all be paramount skills they are developing as they learn. And the schools and wider community has a vital role to play in the support of this.                                                                                  
To be sustainable relates to how schools and places of learning position themselves in the opportunities provided for the children.                                                                                        
If our educational approach allows for project work and longterm investigation, resources and materials have an extended life. The possibilities given to a child to investigate for a longer time provides richer learning, greater depth of understanding, and builds a more resilient learning character.                                                                                                            
To be sustainable is not just about our environmental considerations, but also about nurturing a long-term vision.
