To connect through education to advance understandings and actions in relation to environmental and sustainability issues across all communities and education sectors.
Learning Circle: 8 March 2017 4pm (Eastern summer time)
Environmental Literacy Standards
Cam Mackenzie (AAEE Vice President) will present on the Environmental Literacy workshop hosted by the World Future Council.
Before the tumultuous election results in the USA, the Obama administration proclaimed a national law that focussed on environmental education called “No Child Left Inside Act 2015”. This Act required States to develop their own Environmental Literacy Plan which in the State of Maryland resulted in their State Legislation development of their Environmental Literacy Standards. These Standards are achievements that every student who leaves High School must have achieved. How do these compare to the Australia Curriculum's nine Organising Ideas for the cross curriculum priority for sustainability.
