Covid 19 has exposed the fragility of our social and economic fabric whilst at the same time emphasised what we value most – our social infrastructure (from the NHS to our schools), climate emergency and social equality. Organisations and businesses have been swift in getting the wheels turning to address the later two; in a race to secure their future and sustainable growth. But are our schools equipped to do the same?
Generally speaking schools have looked the same for the best part of a century. Yes, technological advances have made their way into classrooms in the form of interactive whiteboards, but the premise remains the same. Join the debate to discuss how schools can evolve to play their part in addressing the climate emergency whilst still maintaining the children’s wellbeing and learning at it’s heart.
Join us as part of the London Festival of Architecture 2020 to debate how can schools evolve to play their part in addressing the climate emergency whilst still maintaining the children’s wellbeing and learning at it’s heart?
