Sustainability and Education Policy Network-Canada, Final Reports

These reports summarize synthesized findings from across the policy analysis, survey, and site visit case studies carried about by the SEPN-Canada project.  There are separate reports for primary/secondary education and higher education. Companion reports outlining policy and practice examples across whole institution domains are also available. The examples in the reports are drawn from the Canadian landscape analysis data.

The Sustainability and Education Policy Network (SEPN) is an internationally recognized leader in sustainability and climate change education policy research.

Climate change, new environmental technologies, and energy and water sustainability are cultural and political challenges, not just technical issues. Solving our human-environment challenges requires integrated solutions that require citizens to be informed about environmental issues and motivated to make change.

Given mounting public support for mitigating the effects of climate change, education sectors in nations throughout the world will be increasingly expected to align policy to address sustainability challenges.

However, little is known about how education systems are – and could be – influencing sustainability and climate action. Existing research on sustainability policy and practice in education is scarce, uncoordinated, and regional.

SEPN, an international network of researchers and organizations advancing sustainability in education policy and practice, emerged in response to these knowledge gaps. The network was established with $3 million in funding from the Canadian Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) and generous funding from our partners.
