The BC Working Group on Sustainability Education was formed in 2006 as a multi-sectoral group of key players and decision makers working across the province to advance the agenda of sustainability education in BC. The group has worked closely with the BC Ministries of Education and Advanced Education and with the National Education for Sustainable Development Expert Council. Three sector teams (non-formal education, formal K-12 education, and higher education) were formed to work on forwarding specific interest areas.
In a world where information and resources about sustainability are abundant and often overwhelming, our goal is to connect and support those groups and individuals. By creating this working group and online network, we aim to collaborate, integrate, track progress, and network around sustainability education. The project was funded from 2006-2009 by Learning for a Sustainable Future and Environment Canada with in-kind help from the organizations of the working group members.
