Abstract

Many current texts explain the 'what' and the 'why' of Education for Sustainability but few texts 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 much needed 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 section 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. Using this framework two case studies have been provided as examples: 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 all schools both government and non-government to participate in incorporating the sustainability agenda in two main target areas, the school itself, and then, into the broader community.
