This unit will engage with sustainability as a contested concept of global significance, with ethical, political and practical educational implications. Sustainability will be critically addressed as a complex problem, linking environmental, social, economic and educational issues and concerns. In order to address the complex challenge of educating for sustainable worlds, multiple perspectives will be considered. These will include science and environmental studies, contemporary social theory, eco-philosophy and non-western knowledges. Students will analyse the ethical and practical implications of these different perspectives for their own professional practice.
These different perspectives will also be used to critique relevant international and domestic strategic directions, policies and programs. Students will be encouraged to revision the possibilities of educating for sustainable worlds in ways that are inclusive of both human and ecological communities.
On completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Demonstrate understanding of sustainability as a complex and interconnected challenge requiring multiple perspectives and problem-solving strategies;
2. Inquire into different perspectives on sustainability and analyse their ethical and practical implications for professional practice;
3. Effectively communicate their knowledge about global and domestic sustainability policies and programs and their opinions about them; and
4. Demonstrate their capacity to combine professional knowledge and social responsibility through revisioning ways of educating for sustainable human and ecological communities.
