To help us think about what is needed to create a long-term vision and plan for education in England, Carl Ward (FED Chair), hosts a series of ‘In Conversation With’ videos with significant influential individuals to help move our thinking forward.
This week we are delighted to present our latest instalment with the incredible Lord John Bird MBE, a FED National Ambassador and Founder of the Big Issue, which is celebrating it’s 30th Birthday this year.
In this fascinating conversation you can hear Lord Bird talk passionately about his Wellbeing and Future Generations Bill, currently working its way through Parliament, that in his words ‘is a simple device that ensures that any legislation has to pass through the prism of ‘how will this affect future generations’’. Lord Bird also talks passionately about ‘turning everyone green’ through their environment, education and socialisation. Lord Bird highlights the damage caused by poverty and that this bill hopes to tackle the issues of poverty, education and the environment. Watch this fascinating conversation here.
