SDF 0329 – eduCAT The eduCAT (education catalyst) project takes actual sustainability challenges, which are being experienced by business or public sector organizations, into the County’s secondary schools. Pupils from an entire school year group are encouraged and helped to develop innovative and practical solutions to the set challenges that take into account social, economic and environmental considerations. With guidance, their ideas will be developed into a business plan that will be presented back to the challenge setter. Pupils gain new understanding and an opportunity to apply their academic knowledge to real life business situations, whilst developing new skills such as creative thinking and practical understanding of the implications and constraints that climate change may place on their future employers. Adventure guides, who are currently only seasonally employed, will be trained to deliver the programme, which will also help to retain skilled young people working in the county throughout the year.
