What is Sustainability Foundations?
Sustainability Foundations helps secondary school students learn about how we can create a more sustainable future. Linked to biology, chemistry, and geography curricula for 11 to 14 year olds, it explores how we rely on the earth’s interconnected systems, and ways that students can harness creativity to build a greener future.
The course can be delivered online on the Everfi platform, or face-to-face in the classroom, depending on the needs of the school and pupils. It is made up of a mix of case studies, reflection, group work, and discussion.
