Education for sustainability develops the knowledge, skills, values and world views necessary for people to act in ways that contribute to more sustainable patterns of living. It enables individuals and communities to reflect on ways of interpreting and engaging with the world.
Our sustainability education is futures oriented, focusing on protecting environments and creating a more ecologically and socially just world.
