“Shows that we can all make a difference if we all work together.” -
“Informative and fun. Will helps students think more globally.” Rated 5 out 5 for

“When I put together an induction week programme there was always a compromise between
introducing the key concepts of the course and encouraging the students to communicate
with each other and staff. [Sustainaville] allows me to achieve both these goals
in a very entertaining way. It always amazes me that after a single day I can introduce
most of the concepts of Urban Sustainable Development and they also know each other’s
names as well!” -
“The students thoroughly enjoyed the project and could confidently talk about what
they had been doing and talk through their ideas. They have gained fantastic skills!”
“I think the project made a good impact on the student’s personal skills. Our students
had the opportunity to work with a range of different people, and their confidence
and enthusiasm for the project shone through!” -
“The pupils gained experiences they could not have encountered elsewhere.” -
“All the young people have gained knowledge in Climate Change issues and it got them
really thinking about the consequences. In the debate sessions they were all confident
to speak up and give their views on how they can make a difference by instigating
the smallest of things.” -
“It was fun to work in a group and run a town because we could improve the community.”
“I liked the way we had a lot of freedom, and it was exciting to find out the difference
after each round. I also liked the money thing.” -
“The game makes you think about the city, if we mistreat it, it could give Liverpool a bad name – less tourists, and less money for the city.” – Pupil, Liverpool Schools Parliament.
“It has given me the confidence, that I have the ability to influence people.” – Pupil, Liverpool Schools Parliament.
“There are many issues that affect a community that all link to each other.” – Pupil, Liverpool Schools Parliament.
