Letter to Kirsty Williams AM, Cabinet Secretary for Education, Wales.

Dear Minister

Thank you for the invite via Twitter to write to you further on egalitarian ecoliteracy.

Now the latest IPCC report has been published, still erring on the conservative side yet relentless in its call for urgent action, I hope beyond measure you will advocate providing ALL Welsh children and adult learners with the ecological systems and environmental knowledge/settings they truly require.

Equipping each and everyone for the rapid changes now, and the volatile future science predicts ahead of us, is the best gift we can bestow and a collective necessity in Wales under the WFG and Environment Acts.

And more. It’s our generational responsibility.

Here is my appeal, written for the Wildlife Trusts blog back in 2015, more urgent now than ever.

I ask you to consider setting things in motion to introduce this transformational pedagogy. We will need to mentor the mentors.

I look forward to hearing your response.

Yours very sincerely
