010052 Environmental Sustainability Education

This subject investigates ways in which education for sustainability can be incorporated in the F–6 curriculum, in particular HSIE/Geography and Science and Technology, and the mandate for its inclusion. Education for sustainability involves recognising the need to understand the world around us and how it works, natural and human/social systems, and how these things interrelate.

The subject also investigates and supports the development of the skills and experience necessary in implementing, integrating and evaluating related teaching/learning experiences in current curriculum documents and those that are under development. The subject addresses values such as a commitment to an understanding of environmental sustainability, as well causes and effects related to social justice, globalisation, economics, intercultural understanding, democratic processes and responsible uses of technologies.
