Students need a range of skills so they can act for the environment. Our teaching must provide students with these skills so they can:
explore and investigate their world
propose actions needed to maintain and improve their environment
take action for a more sustainable future.
Learning about sustainability can be taught across the curriculum and is best delivered through a wide range of teaching and learning activities through all of the key learning areas. Current research reports on the value of learning for sustainability.
The K-10 cross curriculum resource Sustainability (DOCX 84KBExternal link) provides ideas to embed the cross curriculum priority of sustainability within a history program through learning snapshots with links to resources across a number of different topics from K-10.
