Applied Environmental Education and Communication, v14 n2 p112-120 2015
There has been substantial growth in Education for Sustainability (EfS) in the United States over the past 10 years. Efforts within higher education have created thousands of new programs, majors, minors, specializations, certificates, and across-the-curricula integrations of sustainability learning with an emphasis on real-world problem-solving projects. The K-12/Teacher Education sector has a robust and growing interest in the creation of green and sustainable schools. This article explores the progress made by the U.S. Partnership for Education for Sustainable Development (USP), describes some of the initiatives and networks that have been created or assisted by the USP, and summarizes some of the challenges and potentials for the future of Education for Sustainable Development in the United States.
