“Towards understanding attitudes, behaviours and practices in relation to sustainability and environmental concerns: responsibilities in professional education and curricula”

Pat Cox, Reader in Social Work and Social Justice, School of Social Work, University of Central Lancashire

Pat will discuss and build upon findings from a recent national survey inquiring into what is taught in UK Schools of Social Work about sustainability issues, and drawing from existing literature, she will explore links between attitudes, behaviour and practices, opening up discussions about responsibilities and about how shifts and changes in current curricula might begin. Download Pat Cox presentation 30/1/14
