Educating for a Sustainable Future is not just Shelburne Farms’ tagline. It’s an alternative – you might say, radical – view of the purpose of education. It’s a view explored in our new ebook, Educating for Sustainability: Case Studies from the Field, PreK-12.
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.
