Education for Sustainability (EfS) seeks to capture the real-life learning that connects knowledge to action through inquiry, especially real-world. EfS helps teachers and students to build a healthy future for their communities and the planet. With regard to ECE, elementary, secondary, post-secondary, graduate school, and adult education, EfS helps sustainability practitioners find real-world links with curriculum and school operations, especially as these relationships encourage parental involvement and community partnerships.
In this workshop, we continued the EfS tradition. We aimed to work together to learn about and co-develop a range of activities that promote the development of trans-disciplinary sustainability courses and programs, strengthen capacity for problem-oriented pedagogies and community-engaged practice, and increase the types of experiential research opportunities for students.
