The focus of Ways of thinking, acting and relating about sustainability is to provoke educators to explore the underlying thinking and ethics of actively engaging with sustainability, in both their personal and professional lives. Education for sustainability involves different ways of thinking, acting and relating about sustainability. This publication stimulates critical reflection through research and views about how we live and how we work with children and families in the interests of long-term survival for the Earth. The topics explored in this publication include:
- Thinking about world views
- Meanings of sustainability
- Links between education for sustainability, the NQS and EYLF
- Relationships for sustainability
- Ecological literacy
- Citizenship and rights.
Ways of thinking, acting and relating about sustainability is supported by case studies, reflections, illustrative examples and provocations; all are invitations to engage in deeper thinking about sustainability. The aim is to promote transformative change and create a vision for a better and sustainable future by taking action now in early childhood services. Also available in e-version here.
