Education for Sustainability Foundations & Design Studio [Aug & Sept 2021]

Come August, the Sustainability Institute is hosting a series of upcoming programmes to champion the work of Education for Sustainability (EfS) here in Singapore. We are partnering with the Cloud Institute for Sustainability Education, which has been leading the work of embedding sustainability into curriculum from K-12 in the United States over the past two decades. 

What is Education for Sustainability (EfS)? Education for Sustainability (EfS) is defined as a transformative learning process that equips students, teachers, and school systems with the new knowledge, awareness and ways of thinking to achieve a truly sustainable future. Bringing a whole-systems approach to education, EfS attends to the individual learner, classroom environment, curriculum, learning institution, and wider community at large. You can download the detailed Cloud Institute framework here.

The Cloud Institute has also developed Standards, Performance Indicators and Assessment Guidelines for embedding EfS into curriculum, all without need for additional class time. [For more information on the movement, download the EfS Infographics PDF
