Gibraltar College: Learning for Sustainability
THE GIBRALTAR COLLEGE: LEARNING FOR SUSTAINABILITY
The Guardian Angel Foundation and the Office of the Commissioner for Sustainable Development and Future Generations continue to support learning for sustainability in Gibraltar. The partnership is grateful to the Gibraltar College for encouraging learners to engage with sustainable development. Resources were donated to purchase materials, troughs, soils and seeds to enable students to grow their own food at the College.
The College Principal, Michelle Soiza, explained:
‘The resources provided have been invaluable and they form an integral part of several modules delivered under the ASDAN Programme. The steadiness of the troughs have made the area safe and accessible for learners of all abilities and we have made good use of them to support the gathering of evidence presented for assessment for the modules on healthy eating, managing responsibilities and making the most of leisure time’.
Prof Daniella Tilbury, Commissioner for Sustainable Development and Future Generations added:
'Young people want to learn sustainability through the taught curriculum but are also calling for skills and experience to engage in sustainability practices. The College has understood this and supported students in this area. My thanks go to Mark Montovio, Michelle Soiza as well as to the Kevin Hook, Tyrone Vinet from the Guardian Angel Foundation. These efforts help us all strive for sustainability in Gibraltar.'
