Learning for a Sustainable Future – Pedagogical Resources

Never before have the demands placed on education been greater. As the world’s population nears the 7.5 billion mark and environmental limits are being exceeded, educational practice needs to change to better prepare citizens to address the rising economic social and environmental challenges of the 21st century. This requires participatory teaching and learning methods that motivate and empower learners to change their behaviour and take action for a sustainable future.
LSF has developed a series of professional development tools to assist educators in implementing transformative learning and teaching in their classrooms.
