Sustainability seems to be a global movement, with many countries trying to move towards this important ideal of preserving resources for as long as possible. This has proven to be somewhat of a social challenge, which affects everything from individual lifestyles to transportation.
Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under different governments: the UK Government is responsible for England, and the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive are responsible for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.
