In collaboration with the International Research Institute in Sustainability (IRIS) and the Centre for Excellence in Active Learning (CEAL), Prof Walid El Ansari has led a successful bid to the European Commission Lifelong Learning Programme (Grundtvig) to host an international workshop.

The content of the Workshop will focus on sustainability, alternative approaches to sustainable lifestyles, and individual and community well-being. It will use the Healthy Towns and Transition Towns’ models (characterised by a shift to a low consumption lifestyle) to investigate how participants can use the environment in sustainable ways to support emotional, mental, physical and social well-being.
