    Workshop Overview
    In this workshop participants will explore the challenges and means of integrating sustainability values, principles and practice into education – specifically existing curriculum and school culture. Special emphasis is placed on the use of systems thinking to enhance teaching and student learning. Systems thinking tools and methods will be demonstrated and participants will have the opportunity to explore their practical application within their own subject disciplines and as agent of change for school transformation. The aim of the course is for participants to leave with a deeper understanding of sustainability and its alignment with the goals of education and existing curriculum requirements, in addition to gaining experience in using systems thinking tools, methods and skills in their teaching practice and own spheres of influence and roles within their school. Moreover, participants will gain a greater awareness of their own systems context and construct a personal systems action plan to leverage their sphere of influence for positive change in their school.
