A National Review of Environmental Education and its Contribution to Sustainability in Australia
is a five-volume series produced by the Australian Research Institute in Education for Sustainability (ARIES). Volume 2 focuses on school education. It addresses the need to integrate sustainability content into the curriculum, and the need for whole school approaches to learning for
sustainability. Rather than simply focusing on action elements of the curriculum, there is a need to move toward a participatory approach based on equity, sharing, listening, reflection, co-learning, negotiation, critical thinking, cooperation, collaboration, trust, futures-orientation and democracy.
