Here, however, we focus especially on some of the current thinking about ESD in ITE within Science. Our hope is that this article will attempt to stimulate thinking and provide ideas that we hope will act as a spur to enable colleagues to extract and use some of the materials with their science student teachers so that ESD becomes embedded within all ITE Science Education programmes across the country. This article contains:Ideas for Exemplar ITE Module Outlines which focus on ESD including :1.An ESD Elective module with a science element available to all trainees - Here you are provided with a full outline of an elective module undertaken in the fourth and final year of a BA Primary Honours programme available to all trainees following this programme some of which included science specaialists. 1.0 Rationale 2.1 Introduction 2.

Principles of Sustainability. The earth is a naturally sustainable system.

Principles of Sustainability

However, the accumulated impacts of human activity threaten our continued well-being. Research by an international network o f scientists defined three basic conditions that must be met to maintain the essential natural resources, structures and functions that sustain human society. They also acknowledged that human action is the primary cause of the rapid degradation of nature. A fourth system condition addresses the social and economic considerations driving those actions and our capacity as human beings to meet our basic needs. While written to be clear scientifically, the specific wording of the four system conditions can be confusing. The problem is not that we mine and use heavy metals, or use chemicals and compounds produced by society, or disrupt natural processes, or even temporarily interfere with people’s capacity to meet their basic needs.

Education for Sustainability. Educating for Sustainability is “learning that links knowledge, inquiry, and action to help students build a healthy future for their communities and the planet.”

Education for Sustainability

EFS helps teachers bridge grade levels and subject areas, curriculum and school operations, parent and community partnerships. Through SSP, a school develops its own meaningful, coherent approach to improve curriculum, community partnerships and campus ecology. Teachers learn about the community’s vision and strategies for a sustainable future, then bring this larger dialogue into their curriculum with a focus that’s appropriate for their students. This fosters ongoing school-community partnerships that gain staying power from their ties to the curriculum and to each other. And these partnerships create learning opportunities for students in their community–whether in the schoolyard or at the food shelf.
