There is still time to register for seminars at the Scottish Learning Festival 2015.
The Scottish Learning Festival (SLF) is the key education event in Scotland welcoming thousands of education professionals.
SLF 2015 takes place on Wednesday 23 and Thursday 24 September in the SECC, Glasgow.
Below are some of the key seminars relating to learning for sustainability. Remember that even if the seminars are showing up as full when you register, it can be worth trying to attend on the day, as spaces often become available.
