Living Change: Documenting good practice in Education for Sustainability in NSW
Many texts explain the 'what' and the 'why' of Education for Sustainability but few capture the intricacies of 'how' to bring it into practice. Living Change attempts to fill this gap by capturing the experiences of educators who are making changes to their programs, orienting them towards Education for Sustainability. This resource has been jointly developed by Macquarie University and the Nature Conservation Council, NSW. It has been designed to assist those seeking to educate for sustainability and consists of three different sections:
- The Framework provides an introduction to the resource and the concepts underpinning Education for Sustainability. Based on these concepts this section presents a framework which can be used by practitioners to document their experiences in order to inspire and educate others.
- Case Study: Cool Communities is a nationwide partnership program focused on making changes in households towards greenhouse gas abatement.
- Case Study: Sustainable Schools is a program which invites both government and non-government schools to participate in incorporating the sustainability agenda in two main target areas, the school itself and the broader community.
