Across the world, school geography curricula have been evolving to keep abreast with the issues that affect humankind in a fast-changing world such as environmental change and globalisation. The teaching and implementation of a curriculum for Education for Sustainability (EfS) has been a challenge for many teachers, who are seeking examples to learn from. This book highlights the issues and challenges educators and academics face in implementing EfS and gives examples of how some institutions translate it into practice. This book provides an examination of what an EfS curriculum may look like and how to translate the theory into practice. It also answers the important question of EfS; for whom and from whom. Organised into three categories, the volume looks at: the who (EfS for whom?), the what (EfS curriculum) and the how (translating from theory to practice). The concluding chapter provides ideas and directions on where the world can proceed regarding sustainability education and how it can help in the teaching and learning of sustainability.
