The Manchester-Mersey bioregion arguably needs a joined-up approach to One Planet thinking for two city regions in a way that builds on the legacy of the Mersey basin Campaign and current catchment-based approach of the Mersey Rivers Trust.
In this webinar, Dr Tim Saunders (EHU Department for Children, Education and Communities) envisions a Regenerative River Republic with a bioregional meta-pedagogy that seeks to integrate education for Wellbeing, Resilience and Sustainability, which he calls Education for Thrivability. The resulting Thrivability Toolkit is a practical synthesis of thinking skills, learning powers and imaginative ecological education designed to be used by teachers of all subjects in primary, secondary and tertiary education as well as citizens and activists in the bioregion, all those seeking practical conversational ways of supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals on a Monday morning
The talk was held through Zoom on Tuesday 2nd February 2021.
