Welcome to A Rounder Sense of Purpose (RSP). On this website you will find the RSP framework of competences designed for all educators, working at any level, who wish to provide an education for sustainable development. You will also find information about the RSP project and its partners.
There is no shortage of evidence to suggest that the way we organise and run our society has created a range of interconnected social and environmental issues – from biodiversity loss to gross inequality to climate change.
As educators, if we are not working consciously towards a socially and environmentally sustainable world, then we are probably working against it.
But what kind of educator does it take to help learners address these global challenges and prepare them for their impacts?
This is the question behind A Rounder Sense of Purpose (RSP). This three-year project brought together six experienced and committed institutions to develop a practical framework of competences for educators who wish to educate for sustainable development.
