Boyd DJ, Hirst N, McNeill C. 2017. an early years resource that can support children, parents and the community to understand and promote Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). The pedagogical toolkit supports and challenges early years practitioners to understand how they can embed crucial ecological values into their practice. Embedded into the framework is the English EYFS (DfE, 2017), the nine themes of Eco-School England, place-based learning, and the three pillars of ESD. The toolkit also supports the fundamental British values. The project has evolved through consultations across England as well as networking opportunities to develop wider stakeholder partnerships. Key stakeholders and a diverse range of providers and practitioners are now committed to working alongside LJMU to develop this pedagogical framework. >Link
