How do we measure sustainability? This interactive workshop gave delegates the opportunity to answer some of the knowledge-based questions from the Sustainability Literacy Test endorsed by the international ESD community and taken by 28,000 students globally.

Participants then provided feedback on the questions and the process. The workshop shared the work of the UK Steering Group on developing the test to expand beyond knowledge-based questions to test graduate attributes (the skills, behaviours and values of sustainability literacy) and to provided a learning resource in itself. Participants worked in small groups to develop a question which was tested on fellow colleagues and will be considered for the next version of the SuLiTest.
