When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world. ~John Muir


Sustainability is glibly muttered by corporate PR suits; derided by conservatives as hippie nonsense; rendered nose-bleedingly boring by many teachers in schools; bigger than Ben-Hur and as flexible as Blu-Tack… and utterly essential for humanity’s ongoing survival.

In this blog we hope to unpack what ‘sustainability’ means – particularly for those living in cities, particularly for students and their teachers.
