Education for Sustainability (EfS)
and Climate Action Campaign
The AAEE Education for Sustainability (EfS) and Climate Action Campaign is mobilising the Australian community to support education and training policy reform, so that we can all participate in the transition to a safe and sustainable presence on our home, the Earth.
Our kids are increasingly worried about climate change.
Educating them about the problems and how to help fix them will put us on the path forward.
The Australian Curriculum includes a focus on Sustainability, which would provide that education but this is not being delivered.
Our kids and everyone else need to be educated so that they can fully understand our urgent climate and environmental problems and know how to get to work to solve them.
