How do we create social values of global sustainability? One very effective way is through education that empowers behaviour change.
Fiona Buchanan is a passionate young teacher who discovered our SLS: Student Leadership in Sustainability curriculum materials by attending a professional development workshop we facilitated. Fiona brought SLS to her Planning 10 and Leadership 11 course; she and her students simply loved the experience:
"The most important observation I made from the overall experience was the empowerment the students felt after finishing the projects. Because the students were required to take actions and because the actions were “doable” students had a felt experience of actually making a difference. The students commented several times on how surprised they were at the impact the small actions made in their own lives and in the lives of their family, friends, neighbourhood, and community."
