Process

The University of Edinburgh was commissioned to review literature relating to the educational impact of LfS. However, as LfS with its three inter-related dimensions is a relatively new concept, there is limited research on Scottish educational outcomes, so the literature examined includes international research covering sustainability education more broadly. Opening up the study in this way revealed a huge increase in peer-reviewed research from a range of disciplines (not just educational research) conducted since 2000, and specifically within the last decade. To keep things manageable, data from the past five years was prioritised and screened for quality and relevance to key themes. The main findings of the full report [5] are summarised below.
