  • The Future We Really Want   2 years 40 weeks ago
    As this wonderful article points out, education needs to play a vital role. The education sector has been slow to change and in the current climate of education reform discussions even Education for Sustainable Development(ESD) tends to slip off the radar. The approach that I've taken with teacher education is to integrate sustainability education with research from happiness studies into a transformative course called Sustainable Happiness. It encourages pre-service teachers to understand how their daily choices contribute to, or detract from, happiness and wellbeing - as well as identifying opportunities to shift toward sustainability, both personally and professionally. The course syllabus is available at:http://sustainablehappiness.ca/university/. My recommendation is to incorporate sustainable happiness and wellbeing into the evolving understanding of ESD.
