Tom Roche from “Just Forests” put on an interactive exhibition. It was based around the environment, social and economic importance of the world’s forests through Development Education and Education for Sustainable Development.
This topic is dealt with in many subject and so classes from woodwork, music, geography and economics attended the workshops. His central message was that the students’ generation need to make creative decisions around sustainability to correct the mistakes our generation have made. Thanks to Ms Hughes for organising Tom’s visit.
