School Name
The work of Just Forests provides teachers and teacher educators with practical suggestions for the integration of a global perspective in the primary curriculum. The [Wood of Life] exhibition is unique and ‘hands-on’ and delivers a valuable learning experience which was appreciated by all of our students. It highlights, in a very meaningful way, the beauty of wood and the role and significance of timber and forests in the overall debate on sustainable human development.

In this, the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development 2005-2014, the focus on education for sustainable development by organisations such as Just Forests provide invaluable support for student teachers who are trying to teach topics pertaining to sustainable development in the classroom.
