Early Childhood Education and Sustainability: A Living Curriculum
MacDonald, Margaret
Childhood Education, v91 n5 p332-341 2015
As climate change, overpopulation, and inequalities begin to take their toll on our planet and on global human development, sustainability has become increasingly important for a prosperous future. How can we ensure quality of life for future generations? How can we make choices and cultivate environments in which sustainable practices are the norm? Over the past several years, the international community has been developing global goals to promote human rights, equality, and security through 2030. These Sustainable Development Goals are designed to create conditions in which every person on earth is able to thrive in societies that are safe, progressive, nurturing, just, and peaceful. Children and their families will have a vital role to play in creating these societies and will need a strong foundation in sustainable thinking and practices to bring about a brighter future.
