K-12 Sustainability Education Resources

Facing the Future works within the education system to help teachers help students achieve academic success, while preparing them to create and maintain positive, healthy, and sustainable communities. They provide curriculum resources, teacher workshops, and service learning opportunities used by teachers, schools, and districts in all 50 states and over 100 countries. The Sustainable Schools Project is a dynamic new model for school improvement and civic engagement designed to help schools use sustainability as an integrating context for curriculum, community partnerships, and campus practices.

United Nations Decade for Education for Sustainable Development, for which UNESCO is the lead agency, seeks to integrate the principles, values, and practices of sustainable development into all aspects of education and learning, in order to address the social, economic, cultural and environmental problems we face in the 21st century. The U.S. Partnership consists of individuals, organizations and institutions in the United States dedicated to education for sustainable development (ESD). It acts as a convener, catalyst, and communicator working across all sectors of American society.

Higher Education Resources

The Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education works to empower higher education to lead the sustainability transformation. They do this by providing resources, professional development, and a network of support to enable institutions of higher education to model and advance sustainability in everything they do, from governance and operations to education and research.

Second Nature’s mission is to accelerate movement toward a sustainable future by serving and supporting senior college and university leaders in making healthy, just, and sustainable living the foundation of all learning and practice in higher education.
