Leading and Learning for a Sustainable Future
This area is dedicated to sharing tools, resources, information and learning - offered by learning providers, by LSIS and by other partners and stakeholders - which can support individuals and organisations in the learning and skills sector in working, teaching and learning more sustainably.
Seeing sustainable development as part of the improvement agenda
In 2010, LSIS launched "Leading and Learning for a Sustainable Future", a wide-ranging strategy to support the sector in responding to the challenge, recognising a growing appetite in the sector to understand, apply and champion sustainable thinking and practice.

You can explore the different sections of the Sustainable Development area, and the different resources within them, through the links below.
The Sustaining Our Future framework aims to promote a shared understanding of sustainability in the sector, enabling all of us to more easily and objectively develop and implement a strategic response.
The Stepping Up in Sustainability (SuS) and Cut the Carbon (CCF) Funds create opportunities for providers to develop and share successful approaches to sustainability and carbon reduction.
The Reaching Forward Index is an online self-assessment tool to objectively review your current practice and performance in sustainable development, and identify areas of strength and areas for development.
Hosted and managed by the Environmental Association for Universities and Colleges, with LSIS support the Sustainability Online Resource for Training and Education (SORTED) provides an unrivalled depth of resources and information on sustainability and sustainable development, designed specifically for people and providers in the learning and skills sector. With support from LSIS, the EAUC has made a number of improvements to SORTED in August 2011, including an enhanced search facility and new resources.
Other useful resources
LSIS offers a number of other opportunities to individuals and providers in the sector to support the embedding of sustainability within and across the sector. These include:

LSIS Regional Sustainability Advisers
The LSIS Regional Sustainability Advisers (RSAs) exist to help lead change in their region. The RSAs will be ambassadors for embedding sustainability into organisational strategy, practice and performance, and for developing the capacity and capability of sustainability leaders to drive change. They will build and connect with sustainability networks across their region, promote and help to embed LSIS sustainability programmes and resources, and host a half-day network event within their region.
