Educating for Sustainability: Case Studies from the Field, Prek-12

Sustainability: When the environmental, economic, and social needs of a society are met in the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.

This isn’t a book about pedagogical approaches, content, or the student outcomes of educating for sustainability (though all are critical). Instead, it sheds light on promising practices. From preschoolers mapping in a school garden to a middle school makerspace exploring social justice and food security, these nine case studies offer a compelling vision of what education can be: a pathway to create healthy and just communities, successful lives, and a more livable world.  

Read all the case studies here and check out the blog from Shelburne Farms about the new book.
