Educating for Sustainability in Queensland Schools

The Sustainable Schools Network (SSN) advocates for more Educating for Sustainability (EfS) curriculum in Queensland schools. To further this effort, they have curated a Discussion Paper that we’d like to share with you. Your feedback will help shape their message to government officials. We hope this is the start of building a state-based strategy for EfS in Queensland. Please download the Discussion Paper here.

Their website features a number of ‘calls to action’ that the community can engage in https://www.ssn.org.au/discussion-paper, along with a petition that will be presented to State Government: https://www.ssn.org.au/efs-petition-1.

The SSN has also produced a summary document of election recommendations. This can be downloaded here.

We appreciate your support. For more information, please visit www.ssn.org.au.
