Learning for Sustainability
Our Learning for Sustainability program works with students, kindergartens and schools, and parents and communities to strengthen learning ecosystems in remote small island and coastal communities to improve student learning experiences and outcomes.
We support students to develop confidence, critical thinking, collaboration and creativity through a bespoke learning program that incorporates 21st Century pedagogy, education for sustainable development, and outdoor and experiential learning.
We do this through delivering lessons at our Learning Centres, providing Local Teacher Training sessions, and raising awareness about the importance of learning via Community Engagement activities.
Our learning and training materials are designed with the guidance of professional educators and developed with input from our learning facilitators and local partners. This way, our program is based in recognised pedagogy while being inclusive of the values, experiences and languages of children who live in remote small island and coastal communities.
