Through focusing on children's sustainability learning this book examines how school education can address the current environmental problems. It explores children's responses in literacy and language, arts-based approaches, and indigenous studies as well as scientific pedagogies to provide a unique insight into how children learn. The book is distinctive in that it is based in empirical research with children in their sustainability learning in a number of different locations in Australia. In this way it complements the majority of texts in the growing field of education for sustainability which are of a theoretical or advocacy nature.
