Twenty first century education must meet the learning needs of communities and help to address twenty first century issues. As recognized by UNESCO, education for sustainability is an important part of this process. Consequently, this unit will provide students with a broad introduction to education for sustainability. Initially, this unit explores social, economic, and environmental sustainability issues which impact both Australian and global contexts. Second, theoretical perspectives related to sustainability and education for sustainability will be introduced and examined. Finally, the place of education for sustainability in the Australian Curriculum (ACARA), State and Territory Curriculum, and VET sector standards will be explored along with implications for teaching and learning (pedagogical) practice.
