What does sustainability mean, and how can educators build sustainability within early childhood education and care services in meaningful ways?

Education for Sustainability, written by Deb and Julie of the NSW Early Childhood Environmental Education Network (ECEEN), looks at ways educators and families can promote sustainability within both their service and their community. When we engage in sustainability education in early childhood settings, we are aiming to create living and learning spaces that reflect and encourage sustainable practices now and into the future.

In this course, you will understand:

  • the meaning of sustainability and its importance for young children, educators and early childhood education and care services
  • how sustainability is viewed in the National Quality Standard and the Early Years Learning Framework, and
  • the tools educators can use to assess and improve sustainability in everyday practices.
