    The locals

  • EaS and EfS

    Education about sustainability:

    – is an awareness lesson, or the technical knowledge and skills about sustainability

    – is not necessarily oriented to achieving change.

    Education for sustainability:

    – is the use of education as a tool to achieve a sustainable future

    – EfS is focused on empowering people to take action

    – EfS includes elements of education about sustainability.

    …I found that delivering

    sustainability is more about

    changing attitudes &
