Education for sustainability: Students lead the way

This paper examines the origins and evolution of sustainability education (SE) before outlining one expression of contemporary good practice in SE in a school context, including the ways in which schools can assess progress towards sustainability. Commonalities between the IB learner profile and good practice in SE are identified and questions for self-reflection are posed. The paper concludes with the examination of a case study of an IB World School that is embracing a student-led, whole-school approach to sustainability.
