Sector-led projects

Between 2010 and 2013, LSIS has provided grants to support 63 projects which aim to develop, embed and disseminate effective approaches to sustainable development.

Each of these projects has developed a case study and, in many cases, resources and tools, which are now available for other providers to access, adopt, adapt and learn from the Truro and Penwith College project, with links to pages showcasing their case study and any associated resources that have been developed by or collated by them.  Please feel free to download, use and adapt these resources - while acknowledging the authors - and to contact and engage with Truro and Penwith College to find out more. Contact details are provided within the case study.

Truro and Penwith College - Leading to Learn and Learning to Lead: from sustainability to employability, greening the local economy

As future educators, engineers and scientists our students are the vehicle for implementation and change. Rio+20 has been heralded as the ‘implementation conference’. This project aimed to be integral to the implementation process, by establishing a common set of themes on actions for embedding educational practices that raise self-awareness of sustainability.
